Who??????• Lack of food may not be a problem for everyone but it does effect people and the way they think and act. How would you react if you saw starving children where you could see there bones popping out they were so hungry and sick and its to late for you to do anything to help. I would feel pretty terrible.• But there is something you, I the people all over the world and the people in Africa can do to help……
How Much????• This Chart shows how much poverty there was in the different parts of Africa as of 2009.• As you can see the centre of Africa has the least amount of poverty, that is because it is the more rich part of Africa.• But other parts you can see have up to as much as 12,500 people living in poverty!!!!
What????• Poverty is unhappiness. It is lack of needs.• In 2009, 22 of 24 nations identified as having "Low Human Development“.• Over $500 billion (U.S.) has been sent to African nations in the form of direct aid. The consensus is that the money has had little long term effect.
Why????• I’ve done many posts on poverty in different places. Many of the reasons are the same but then again there is always one specific reason, in Africa it is Personal sacrifice.• The other reasons include , slothfulness, tragedy (earthquakes, floods, wars, etc.), or corruption.
What Can We Do To Help?• There is many sites where you can support children and families in Africa. You have probably seen the commercials on T.V. I can’t think of the names of them off the top of my head.• There is charitys that sometimes go throughout the schools that you can donate to but people who don’t have a high income there is definitely other ways to help them. Such as, just praising for healing, calling the government and beg them to change their ways. Just one tiny thing on your part can change a whole persons live.• Here is a story on the CBC news in Toronto.• http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/story/2011/07/2 8/toronto-africa-relief.html
