Why we should give MORE money to the poor. Persuasive Piece by Matthew

22,000 children die each day from poverty according to UNICEF, that means 916 per hour and 15 per minute, 30 parents losing children per minute! Thats 62 TIMES the population of Stonefields School! Moe than 3 BILLION people live on less than $2.50 a day, but most of the people at our school live on at least $14.50 a day.
It has to be a law to give money to Charity for 3rd world countries.

3rd world countries at this current time are suffering from many deadly diseases such as Ebola, which is nothing to laugh about;  They have hardly any food or water to nourish them and also some of them are in horrible temperatures. Lots of people in poverty just live in little shelters made of blankets and sticks living next to poisonous snakes and and rats, they are living in no civilised ways. They can hardly find just a little nourishment to last them the whole day, but we live on probably more than 3 meals a day. We are very lucky that we don’t have any contagious diseases or pollution around us. The only major pollution we have in New Zealand is light pollution from all of the lights we have in the main cities! We are no-where near the top 20 polluted countries, we’re a 1st world country. Children in poverty die in some of the poorest villages on earth according to UNICEF.

Some of the big continents with poverty are Africa and South America which are major 3rd world countries, They have hardly any money; so they have to work for their food; hunt animals themselves and grow plants and they need to learn when their vegetables are ready for harvesting but they don't have any education to do so. Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names. 80% of the world lives on less than $10 dollars a day. There are some very rich people in these places, that are probably richer than you; but are not giving any money or food to charity to people that are actually suffering from these awful things, and keeping all the money to themselves and having more than 3 good meals a day. If you think they are greedy what about you, if everyone gives just a little money it will make a big difference.

Imagine how this will change the world if we all contributed some money for charity we could provide better and warmers shelters with 4 walls around everyone one in the world. They could have 3 good quality meals a day, because at the moment 780 million suffer from chronic hunger, which means that their daily intake of calories is insufficient for them to live active and healthy lives.
They may still not be as lucky as us but they will have a much better lifestyle is we help them, and have some education so they can learn how to get work somewhere and earn money. This will make them feel appreciated. The world would be more equal if we helped these poor countries.

If we all work together we will have an even amount of money and life would be more fair. We need this law planted into the New Zealand Tax… This could change much of the world for a long time and the reason they’re suffering for these diseases is because they dont have good medical facilities and they cant pay for cures.
