You Can Help Them!

Imagine helping those people to live a close to normal life, a life where they afford to eat, drink, sleep and all those basic things properly, it’s those kind of things which could change one of those poor people’s life! How can you help?

You could send off some money to charities which help those certain people, there are also some charity shops go to those. Just those most simplest things could change someone’s life maybe only for a day, but if they get food for example they would be able have more forces for the following days to come. 

Another way would be if you know someone who might work for the government or who might know someone who works their, well talk to that person to convince them so send some money off, or make an announcement in a school,  anything like that would change something for someone out there.

South Korea

In 2009 the amounts of people asking for help for the basic things such as water, food, etc. rose 1 000 per month.

Image

In 2009, 76 000 families were living with less than what is necessary cost. These families will be put into special help by the city’s special assistance programs.

These cities want to give up to around 5 million cash to families who have lost their job, or their job when out of business.

The United States of America –

In Washington last year, the salaries of the families were only cut down a little. Even with this the amount of people in poverty has never been this high in 52 years.

The average family salaried was US$49 777 in 2009, this is 0.7% less than in 2008.

Sheldon Danziger says that they have changed a lot of things such as:

  • Giving a benefit to people unemployed
  • A US$250 bonus for the Social Security Recipient.

This has retained 3.3 million people out of poverty in 2009.

For families which are controlled by people who are 65 and older, they have been given a 5.8% rise in their salaries; this though caused a problem for families which are controlled by people who are 45 and younger, because their salaries drop. For other who is between 45 and 64 nothing changed.

The amount of people with no medical insurance rose from 4.4 million to 50.7 million in 2009.

Robert Rector who is a senior at the conservative heritage foundation mentioned that the government had paid around US$ 20 000 per poor person in 2010. The government was hoping that by giving the poor money, they would be less unemployment and for people working but that never happened.

In 2009, the salaries for the woman who worked full time were 70% of what the men got. The true average is that for the men who worked full time, gained 2% in their salaries from 2008 to 2009 (from US$ 46 191 to US$ 47 127) while women who worked full time gained 1.9% (which means from US$ 35 609 to US$36 278)Image

Switzerland

In 2002 the line was 2 200 francs per month, for someone living alone, and for families with two children it was 4 600 francs.

Swiss families were considered poor if they did not reach the salary average of the country.

There is a group called the “Working poor”, these people are the ones who have jobs but still live under the poverty line. Apparently in 2005, 4.2% og the people who are between 20 and 59 came into this category, this has changed from in 2004 when it was 4.5%.Image

There is also the “Welfare Benefits” which is for the people who are below the minimum income for being. In 2005, 3.3% of the population was like this. Image

Brazil – 16.2 million people in extreme poverty

Brazil – 16.2 million people in extreme poverty
The Brazilian government says that families in extreme poverty are the ones that live with less than R$70 per month. While the United Nations say that you are in extreme poverty if you earn less $1.25 per day. This comes to around R$60 per month.
The result of that statement, from the Brazilian government, came to the fact that 16.2 million people are living in extreme poverty in Brazil. This is around 8.5% of the Brazilian population.
Apparently out of all the people in extreme poverty (16.2 million) 1.8 million of these people don’t get any salary, while the other 11.4 million slaries that differ extremely between R$1 to R$70 per month.
Brazil is the biggest country in the south America. However, they also have lots of people who are poor. The

lack of medical cares, the sanitation facilities, access to education and employment leads almost most of the Brazilian population to a miserable life.

The big problems that the government needs to solve are about the education, housing, health care and nutrition for the homeless children, because the parents can’t afford to raise them. About 42% of the children in Brazil are poor. Moreover, there are ⅛  that don’t have a place to live in. That makes them stop going to school and being educated and go to work. Then, they don’t eat well, because they don’t have enough money to buy the right food.
