Transcript of Poverty

Poverty By: Aiden, Allie, Laura, and Justin Level 1: Contributions Muhammed Yunus Abdul Sattar Edhi Muhammad Yunus has spent much of his life tackling the problem of poverty with socially-focused economics. He is a hero of creativity, innovation, and economic goodwill. In 1974 a famine caused great suffering and starvation across the land of Bangladesh. Yunus loaned $27.00 of his own money to some of the women in the villages. He believed it gave them a chance to make a profit and repay their loans. Yunus named his organization the Grameen Bank (Village Bank). Overall, he gave the people from poor villages a sense of hope by loaning them money when no other banks around their area would. When Edhi was in his 20's, his family moved to Karachi, Pakistan. There the poverty conditions were harsh. Infants were discarded on roadsides, and adult corpses baked in the sun. Edhi realized the need for medical care, and saved up enough money to open a medical clinic. His friend, a doctor, taught him basic medical skills. He would sleep outside his clinic so he was available to the people whenever they needed medical help. His clinic grew and is now the largest clinic in Pakistan. He has over 300 clinics and 2,000 ambulances. Oscar Romero International Day for the
Eradication of Poverty Organizations that
Help with Poverty Relief Romero was appointed arch bishop of San Salvador. The oligarchy in San Salvador became a powerful enemy after murdering one of of his close friends, Father Rutilio Grande. Then Romero learned about the torture and unfair living conditions of the peasants. Mercenaries were sent to rape and kill peasants, and because the church protected them, Romero was a target. Romero continued preaching. He was a hero because he gave a voice to those with none and encouraged those who had lost all hope.

Grew up taking care of his mother who suffered from paralysis and diabetes, and that is where his love for helping the sick developed. At the age of 20, he migrated to Karachi, Pakistan. The poverty conditions here were very harsh. He realized the desperate need for a medical clinic, and began to save up money. He applied himself to learn basic medical care from a friend who was a doctor. He was dedicated to his work. He would even sleep on the steps outside of his clinic so he was available at all times for anyone who needed his help. In 1957 there was a flu epidemic in Karachi. He set up tents around the city that distributed free vaccinations. His clinic grew and as he saved more money, he bought an ambulance so he could drive himself to the sick. Soon his clinic became publicly funded and were able to open up more clinics with more resources. Today Edhi has over 300 clinic and 2,000 ambulances in the country of Pakistan.
