basic needs

when we talk about poverty
we are talking about the lack of basic needs of living such as food ,water shelter and health .
we are talking about 1.2 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty (less than one dollar per day).
we are not talking about luxurious live
we are not talking about fancy stuff

we are talking about the right to live....

even death can differentiate between poor and rich
according to WHO

In high-income countries more than two-thirds of all people live beyond the age of 70 and die of chronic diseases: cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive lung disease, cancers, diabetes or dementia. Lung infection remains the only leading infectious cause of death.

In middle-income countries, nearly half of all people live to the age of 70 and chronic diseases are the major killers, just as they are in high-income countries. Unlike in high-income countries, however, HIV/AIDS, complications of pregnancy and childbirth and road traffic accidents also are leading causes of death.

In low-income countries less than a quarter of all people reach the age of 70, and nearly a third of all deaths are among children under 14. Although cardiovascular diseases together represent the leading cause of death in these countries, infectious diseases (above all HIV/AIDS, lung infections, tuberculosis, diarrhoeal diseases and malaria) together claim more lives. Complications of pregnancy and childbirth together continue to be a leading cause of death, claiming the lives of both infants and mothers.

as seen from the previous figures , death harvest the most valuable player in fighting the poverty

the human ... which make the war against poverty much harder

how we can fight poverty ?

the answer is simple

human + basic needs + free well + motivation + financial resources

yet it's unreachable nowadays because of human greed and the lack of humanity
which result in

war, poverty , pollution, death , hate , killing ,blood, greed and


so to reach the answer of this conundrum we need a lot of working in sake of providing the basic needs for poor people .

and from my point of view . every body should play rule in fighting poverty even if it was a tiny rule. how?

do you need a hint ?

look around you and you will find poor people needs help.

WHO useful publications :

Poverty reduction strategy papers: Their significance for health, second synthesis report

Human rights, health and poverty reduction strategies

Dying for change - Poor peoples experience of health and ill health
