Hundreds of millions of kids grow up without a safe home or even a home at all poverty affects many people and probably even people around you.
Poverty- the state of being extremely poor.
The affects of poverty are seriously dangerous. Kids grow up not being able to get the medical help they need causing them to get sick and become malnourished because of lack of food. The affect can be very deadly. The kids will grow up with little to no education and there parents can't teach them because they more than likely grew up in poverty themselves.

I think it's time everyone comes together as a community to show some of the less fortunate the values of life we have been experiencing since we were born and what we take for granted.
The death rate from poverty is ridiculous and everyone suffers from it not just the children. The amount of people living in poverty alone is just insane.
“Extreme poverty anywhere is a threat to human security everywhere.” — Kofi Annan, Seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations. ...
I agree with the fact that we shouldn't work for money that we don't get but i believe that building more places for the homeless and making housing and schooling cheaper around the places with the highest poverty rates could very well help them.
Helping out the homeless by giving them some money every now and then isn't a bad idea either, these people are living off less than 5 dollars a day i think sharing a little bit of your wealth can be healthy for everyone.
It takes everyone comign together to make the change we need to see in the society because these poverty rates couldn't be worse.
