To Help the Poor

The inequality of people has gained the attention of the media lately.
Yet common people prefer using a dollar for something totally useless to
giving it to charity.
This is surprising, because that dollar could give a poor child
foor, slothing and vaccination. Perhaps people in the industrialised
countries think these charity aids are needless, because the government
donates a share of its budget to help the developing countries. Yet
governments cut their foreign aid, the multinational companies take even
higher adventage of the cheap labour force in the developing countries and if
, after all, people think the future will offer equal chances for everybody
without any help from the rich, awakening from this fantasy is needed.
The information the media give is inadequate, therefore people
should obtain information spontaneously. Yet, common people find it
frustrating, if the information is not very easy to obtain. Like people who
do not recycle because the recycling-bin is 500 metres from their house
instead of their front-yard, people do not attend information meetings if
the meetings are not held very close to them
Thus, information about malnutrition and poverty in the developing
countries should be spread more vigorously if we are aiming at an equal
world. So one should think twice before turning one's back to the next
aid encountered.
