Thus, resulting in many individuals falling victim to hunger. Many poor and barely developed countries don’t have the means to pull themselves out of poverty levels or to feed their people. This is a shame because millions of people waste food every day in other highly developed countries. Macionis (2011), states that rich nations can export high-tech farming methods to poor nations to help increase their agricultural yields (p.259). This would be an exceptional help to end hunger around the world.
Drought left hardship for all three regions and the impact is large-scale. The solution process to this drought is not making the impact it needs to for there is people dying daily from living in this drought. Therefore, the fact remands this drought changed the way of East African peoples life and the affects on the children who never knew the environment any other way are all born into a life of inequality and with all the resources in the world and ability to make food surplus there is no reason to why people should be starving not only due drought but in any condition.
The population that is primarily effected by the poverty are mostly the underdevelopment nations. Huge population in the nation depends on the agriculture for wealth and even with the support of the developed country, a natural disaster still can cause the entire nation to have a tremendous hardship. Because the lack of the health care, most of the destitute family have a higher mortality rate and need more children to carry on the responsibility. The poverty will also cause the lack of education within the children, because they simply need to work for their family’s food. If we continue this bad loop, the situation will only become worse and effect not only the underdeveloped nations but also all around the
Nearly half of its people live on less than a dollar a day. Conflicts, harsh environments, and corrupt governments have devastatedeconomically, forcing countries to borrow for goods and fuel.”(African Cultural Center) This is a harsh reality for these small impoverished communities in Africa. Can you imagine the fear and uncertainty these families must face on a daily basis. Not knowing if they will have enough food to feed their children. The lack of daily resources and medications
According to Food Banking, “Being poor prevents people from buying or producing healthy food,” and “We must stop hunger, be the voice for the poor and hungry and think of smart ways to solve the problem of world hunger so people don’t die simply” (Revolution Hunger). The top countries facing the most poverty and deaths are” India, China, The Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pakistan and Ethiopia” (World Food Programme). According to Revolution Hunger, “the highest causes for hunger is natural disasters, government and policies, agriculture and poverty” (Revolution Hunger). One of the biggest reasons though, is poverty. Because many people suffer from poverty,”This makes them weaker and less able to earn the money that would help them escape poverty and hunger” (WFP).
Because of these increases in population and the low amount of resources available to accommodate these people, hunger is a rapidly increasing problem for the Third World. "The average spending per capita is $660 in a developing country, $13,100 in a developed country, and $19,800 in the United States." "60% of the Third World lives in extreme poverty." "I knew that poverty exists, but it never occurred to me that most of the people in this world live in poverty." (Junior Padma Krishnan) That is the problem with people today, many do not realize what a reality poverty is.
If people are hungry they will be weak, which makes them more vulnerable to a disease and because they are unable to afford healthcare they get more and more ill. They may also infect others if their disease is contagious. Nearly 50% of the population of poor countries is uneducated. Many people don't realise education is still lacking in some areas where poverty level is great. Many families cannot afford to send their children to schools, so instead they send them to work for money, which helps clear their debt.
Unfair trade and farm policies that allow dumping are a major cause of poverty, since many poor communities rely on agriculture as a major source of income. If farmers can't sell their crops for a fair price, they must leave their lands, their families, and migrate in search of jobs. American cotton subsidies are a prime example of how US agriculture and trade policies worsen poverty in Africa. These American subsides have greatly reduced world cotton prices, generating losses to African producers. Although West African cotton farmers are more efficient, low-cost producers they cannot compete with the US producers' access to huge subsidies.
Others are only getting paid 1.25 as a days work, so they can not buy adequate food. One of the results is many children and elderly people suffer from undernourished food. Most people in countries like Africa do not have the knowledge to make a garden, also they do not have the financial support to grow heavy crops in their country. “ This year 9 million children younger than the age of 5 will die needlessly more than half from hunger related causes.”( Quoted) “In a developing country, more than 1.4 billion people live below the international poverty line, earning less than 1.25...
According to Schwartz-Nobel, America will lose as much as 130 billion in future productive capacity for every year that 14.5 American children continue to live in poverty (Koppelman and Goodhart, 2007). Sadly the seriousness of poverty is still often clouded by myths and misunderstandings by society at large. This essay studies the issue of poverty and classism in today's society. Causes of Poverty One of the main causes of poverty is the lack of education. The U.S. education system denies students in poverty the opportunities and access it affords to most other students.
