Poverty continues to be a global epidemic in developing nations, as well as in first and second world nations. Though poverty may have different appearances in different parts of the world, it is undoubtedly present in every country. The parts of the world that contain the most poverty are Africa, South Asia and South America. These are the regions in which poverty is most widespread and significant, but there are many other regions of the world that have deplorable poverty conditions. Anyone who is able to help certainly should help.
It mystifies even the best of social scientists that some nations can have so much wealth while others have next to nothing. In poverty stricken regions, one can see small children digging through trash and swimming through sewage to retrieve things that might be of value. There are shanty towns with no electricity or running water and its residents have very little to eat or drink. It is a tragedy that such a high percentage of global citizens still live in these conditions, but there are measures that can be taken to help. There are many reputable charitable organizations that provide impoverished people with necessities such as clothes, shoes, food, water, school supplies and blankets. Frequently, you are able to donate money for the items or the items themselves.
Poverty is a very serious epidemic that needs to be fought vehemently. Activism is vital to this movement. We cannot afford to stay silent about this situation. Be sure to share your views on world hunger through personal statements such as T-shirts. The statement your clothes make have an effect on people.
