How to fix these problems
Help sponsor a child from compassion
"Poverty is a cancerous, thieving parasite plaguing the destitute. But it's not invincible.
Poverty is an overwhelming, frightening and debilitating beast. But it can be defeated .Child sponsorship helps.Poverty is an opportunity to provide an opportunity. It's an opportunity to kill the worm that eats away at children's hearts, minds and self-esteem." (compassion, 2015). You can help sponsor a child with only $38.00 per month, but when you think about it its just over a dollar a day. Over a dollar a day could change a suffering kids life and get them out of poverty.
