|Bravo to you for writing and posting this fine piece of writing. Sadly many of us in the wealthier countries are aware, but do not consider the problem is theirs to solve. I live in one of those countries, and although I don't have much money at all, I am aware of some of the third world country's problems with poverty. Even so, here in our affluent society, there is growing poverty in the lower socio enconomic circles, and we do nothing about that either. Those with the money to help out simply value their money more than the thousands of lives lost every year to the consequence of poverty, be it child marriage, slavery, and simply starvation. I can offer no solution, but to pray to whatever you believe in to give comfort to so many underprivileged people, wherever they may be.
Keep writing, whatever else you do. Someone will respond one day; positively.
