WHAT MAKES POVERTY SO BAD?

896 million people in developing countries live on $1.90 or less a day. 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. Do you have a clean kitchen with endless pots and pans that are clean? well feel lucky because the people that are in poverty can only use dirty already used and thrown away bottles. 663 million lack of clean water. which can lead to diseases such as malaria and AIDS. 2.4 billion people have no sanitation where they sleep at night because they don't have enough money to pay for a nice clean space.

There are so many people complaining that they are starving with food in their cabinets and in their fridge...REALLY. There are sweet and innocent kids who don't even get to have a clean glass of water every day.


There are kids out there and even adults who don't get to have a warm meal every night, have a warm bed with a bunch of pillows and blankets. Sometimes you have to think of just how lucky you are to have some of these things.


You wake up some mornings whining and complaining that you don't wanna go to school...COME ON PEOPLE. some kids would love to go to school and learn and be able to read or do simple math. If you really think of it some of the people in your class that you think may have everything really honestly have nothing.


Sometimes you have to know a person before you judge them. Next time you wanna complain think of the child below who doesn't even get good clothing or shows to wear.
