Poverty Needs a Little Care From YOU!
Life surrounded by junk. Not being able to get proper education for the age. Not being able to have the right amount of nutrition they should get to grow is not provided because of poverty all over the world. Just give a little care and help others to live a richer life then now. Come to this workshop to learn more about how serious poverty is around the world.

    WHO Says Health Debts Push 100 Million a Year Into Poverty
  • (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVEbtoM4LD0)
  • Rise of health care. (Cost)
  • Costs push 1 million people into poverty.
  • People are getting diseases that are long-term which takes longer treatment.
  • 1 billion people can't get treatment because the cost is too high. (People that really need)
  • Or unavailable.
  • Provide money for health care. (Gov.)
  • Gov. raise money and spend it more wisely.
  • 20~40 % of decrease in cost.
  • Identifies ten areas where better policies and practices could make health systems more efficient.
  • High-price drugs are chosen when low-price drugs can give the same effect.
  • I think this video is good because it tells the negative side of health care. Which will mean that other organizations that earn money by insurance will make people turn poor.

  • After watching video made a great sense of why there is poverty and how it started. I first was wondering how poverty started, but after watching video I feel like that I now know why.

  • Just by looking at this chart, I can see that the poverty rate is increasing rapidly and is still increasing.

  • Site

  • http://www.globalissues.org/article/26/poverty-facts-and-stats
  • This site shows all the facts about poverty and I shocked the most by "According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. And they “die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death.”" This text showed how the innocent kids are dieing unknown in huge rates.
  • http://www.worldhunger.org/articles/Learn/world%20hunger%20facts%202002.htm
  • This site also showed facts about poverty. I learned that poverty have decreased in 2010, but was still in great range. 925 million people were hungry in 2010. South Korea has approximately 48 million people. This means that approximately 19 times the South Koreans is the number of people that were hungry in 2010. Compared to the whole world might be small because the world's population is about 7 billion people. However, considering all specific person would mean that this is in serious condition.

  • Africa: The G8 Can't Get 50 Million Africans Out of Poverty, Only We Can Do That

    By Sunny Ntayombya, 23 May 2012

"Today we commit to launch a New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition to accelerate the flow of private capital to African agriculture, take to scale new technologies and other innovations that can increase sustainable agricultural productivity, and reduce the risk borne by vulnerable economies and communities. This New Alliance will lift 50 million people out of poverty over the next decade," the G-8 said in a statement on Saturday.
  • Bull***t.
  • I've learnt to take ANYTHING coming out of a G-8 summit with a huge dollop of salt. Remember the 2005 G-8 Summit in Gleneagles, Scotland? The United States, Canada, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Russia promised us, Africans, to provide an extra $25bn a year for Africa as part of a $50bn increase in financial assistance by 2010. Well, unsurprisingly, the extra $25 billion hasn't been realised and neither has the additional $50 billion.
  • Honestly, I am not surprised by the huge shortfalls. It's been a rough couple of years for the G-8 with the American economy floundering and the European Union in the gripes of crisis, and with this new declaration these nations are finally coming to terms with the fact that they actually can't do much about Africa's poverty.
  • If you look at the wording of the above statement, you will see that the 'New Alliance' (whatever that is) will 'accelerate the flow of private capital' into the African agricultural sector. In less flowery language, the G-8 is promising to simply point their private companies towards Africa's shores and say "GO"! To this I say, if these private companies haven't jumped on the Africa bandwagon I doubt that this Alliance will make them do so. The ones that want to be here are already here.
  • I was amused by the invitation the leaders of Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana and Tanzania received to attend the G-8 meeting on food security. Not because I have a problem with the G-8's overall choice of invitees, but rather because I disagree with the premise of the invitations. Africa isn't a single country, despite what a lot of people in the West think, and the issues that these four nations face in order to ensure food security aren't necessarily the ones the rest of the fifty states grapple with.
  • Honestly, in my basic knowledge of food security, I don't think that lack of Western agricultural investment is the reason that our children either die of hunger or suffer stunted growth. The issues are closer to home and immune to a magical 'silver bullet' from the West.
  • First of all, let's acknowledge that each and every country has its own challenges. For example, while Rwanda has had to deal with horrible topography (for agriculture at least, not, say, tourism), exhausted soils and a population density second to none in Africa, you cannot tell me that Nigeria faces the same issue. Rwanda has had to look at local solutions and they have worked. Rwanda has been food secure for years now and noticeably that happened while all around us, mayhem prevailed.
  • The solutions for problems must come from within, not without. One doesn't need a huge surge of dollars to feed the mouths of our children.
  • All you need is some stability, focus, the involvement of the entire citizenry and basic scientific knowhow. I know that putting these factors into play is easier said than done, but we don't have much choice. Our salvation won't come from Washington DC; it will come from Blantyre, Libreville, N'Djamena and Ouagadougou. And Kigali, of course. (It's the Article)
  • After reading this made me feel a little awkward. I thought that poverty wasn't that big of a deal, but after I read this, my opinion changed. Even the G-8 can't fix it in an instant, so we need to all work harder to overcome poverty.

  • My heart moved when I saw this picture. Look at those eyes... So sad and lonely.... All because of the lack of money. This made me feel like that I should do something to help.

  • It's not just in Africa that is a problem. It is world-wide!!! I didn't notice it until now!
