If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, I would be a medical doctor in other countries free of charge. There are so many people across the world, who need life-saving medical attention. Numerous children die daily because of lack of medical treatment needed. Many children and adults are dying of diseases that could be cured if they had the treatment they needed. The children live in poverty, and a simple antibiotic could be a lifesaver for them.
“Poverty” defined as an economic condition of lacking both money and basic necessities needed to successfully live, such as clean water, food, an education, healthcare and shelter. There are many working definitions of “poverty,” with considerable debate on how to best define the term.
Lack of income is one of the continued means to meet basic needs all serve as absolute indicators of poverty. Poverty may therefore also be defined as the economic condition of lacking predictable and stable means of meeting basic life needs.
My goal would be to teach in other countries and educate them on farming and how to provide for themselves. We need to educate them as the means of birth control and how to prevent over population. We need to teach them how to clean hygiene habits. We need to provide them safe sanitary water to drink. We need to teach them how to live.
I know there is help provided to the poor countries, but is it really enough? We live in a county where most of us are provided free meals if you don’t have them, and a place to sleep in shelters when it’s cold through food banks. Imagine having no one, nothing but the rags on your back.
