Transcript of Poverty in Third World Nations

What is poverty?
Poverty is the state of being extremely poor
also not having the basic necessities of life such as lack of clean water, lack of food and inadequate shelter. Poverty is not knowing how to read, not being schooled, not having proper healthcare, and all the things we take for granted every day.
The people
The people in these situations have no hope, they can't even guarantee that they will be alive the next day. They expect no help and think everything is hopeless in their situation.
We could be like that if we were in a third world nation. That could be us!
Poverty? What poverty?!
People need to change this, too many people today in our society aren't even aware of the true meaning of poverty and how it is like. They don't even care that these people are starving and with diseases that they can't heal and don't know how to heal mainly because they don't know the true meaning of poverty.
And on the other hand the people in Madagascar and other places struck by poverty have no idea that anyone is out there that has the potential of helping them.
Where is poverty?
Poverty is in third world nations like Nigeria, Brazil, Mexico, etc. As shown on map as highlighted nations.
A third world nation is a place that has extremely limited resources and no healthcare, schooling and not to mention food, water and shelter.
Pneumonia and other types of acute respiratory infection kills over a million children alone every year in third world nations. Pneumonia is highly contagious and can be transmitted by a cough or a sneeze. it is a bacterial illness that can be easily treated by antibiotics but most people in third world nations don't have the accessibility of a doctor that can give them antibiotics.
Diarrhea is
Diarrhea is caused by unclean water, unsafe sanitation or poor hygiene. The disease causes its victims to get rid of body waste uncontrollably and highly diminishing your body fluids until your dehydrated of all the fluids in your body. This disease usually occurs in children and can be easily solved by simple rehydration by drinking lots of clean water. Unfortunately the children suffering from this disease in third world nations have no clean water to drink so they drink dirty water which causes the disease in the first place.
Malaria is the disease carried in mosquitoes and usually only found in places like Congo.It kills approximately half a million people a year. Although this disease is preventable by a cheap mosquito net, people in third world nations don't have the luxury to buy one and use it.
All of these diseases can be cured by things we take for granted. One well in kenya can save thousands of children, mosquito nets donated at 5 dollars each, and things like antibiotics could be sent to third world countries. Just think you can save somebody's life with 5 dollars.
can make the change today, by donating as little as 5 dollars, it can change a persons life very much and might very well save it.
Did you know?
- 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 a day
(nearly half the world's population).
- 22,000 children die everyday due to poverty.
- 1 billion children are living on poverty worldwide.
- 27-28 percent of all children in developing countries are underweight because of lack of food.
Well you can still make a difference!!!
If you were in the state of poverty you would want help to!
All you have to do is go to these following websites and donate as much as you can to save the people struck by poverty in third world nations.
