Transcript of Poverty

Poverty by Jarred Gray UDHR Article 25 Everyone is entitled to a standard
adequate living that will support his/her
health and family. Some things include
food, housing, clothing, medical care, and necessary social services. other things
include security in situations of unemployment,
widowhood, sickness, disability, old age, or lack of livelihood in events beyond his control.
all children are entitled to the same social protection. motherhood and childhood are enabled to acquire assistance/ special care. this article is indefinitely important to protect.
this article portrays some of the basic needs an average person needs to live a basic humane life. without this article, millions of people, women, children, and countless others would suffer. If this article were to be abolished, many people would starve, become ill, and possibly die. But yet, people are still starving. they are still homeless. they are still ill. people still succumb to theses problems, even though they should be protected from them. this is due to poverty. The Basics Poverty- the state of being without adequate food, money, etc.
kills thousands every day, makes many more suffer.
has become a problem worldwide. Poverty easily violates the universal declaration of human rights articles, especially number 25. thousands die each day from lack of food only. millions of others are homeless and ill. on top of it all, people constantly lack the skills required to support ones self and/or his family. this is happening all around the world. two countries in specific would be India and China. how poverty violates the UDHR India Incident one Incident 2 in some parts of India, land is very limited.
this is leaving many people homeless. in
article 25, it states that everyone is
entitled to housing. therefor, this is a
violation of the UDHR article 25. within India lies a state named Orissa. in
this state there are 40 million people, and
half of the total population are living below
the poverty line. this violates article 25 because, this means there are 20 million people who are starving, under clothed, and/or homeless. this video will give you a more in depth explanation about whats going on in Orissa. conclusion the country, like all the others say they are trying to the best of their abilities to abolish poverty. but there is evidence that the government might also be treating citizens unfairly. an example of this is when people are paid less than promised by the government for labor jobs. China incident 1 incident 2 conclusion in china, there has been limited access
to markets and value chains. this could
cut off peoples access to many
standard living resources, like food,
and or clothing. this could cause
people to starve, which violates article
25. within China, there has been a decrease in agricultural product prices. this created a
gap, leaving most of the poverty in rural
areas. with most of the poverty in the rural
area, the government might be less likely to offer security and help to people who are sick, old, or unemployed. this might be because they aren't in major provinces. India has the highest amount of poverty in the world. India has the worlds second largest population. china has the worlds largest population.
china's poverty makes up for 29% of the total world poverty. this country is trying to abolish poverty, but some people say they are going at the problem the wrong way. one thing they have been doing is limiting their population, by only allowing 1 child per parents. on the other hand, china's government makes it hard for people to hold protests. What we can do as a country the U.S can donate money to those in need, thus allowing them to live better lives. what we can do as a state we can help in many ways, from making petitions to get the U.S to donate, to making our own donations. what we can do as a community help spread
awareness start
programs hold
fundraisers individual
donations. solutions
