35 Photographs Expressing The Real Face Of Poverty

  1 Comment

Poverty is a problem that can be removed by simple acts by simple people. This problem is defined as a lack of sufficient resources and basic needs,which causes a lack of food, health care, education and shelter.Overpopulation is also a major factor of poverty because if there are too many people but the resources are limited the number of poor people will increase. This problem varies from person to person or place to place, but the effects of this problem are effecting the whole world. It has been estimated that about 1.7 billion people are living in absolute poverty today. One third of deaths – some 18 million people a year or 50,000 per day – are due to poverty-related causes in total 270 million people, and most of them are women and children, have died due to poverty since 1990. In result of such situations some poor people commit crimes and most of them are immature children whose age is between 12 and 16, they are the weakest morals having no self control. So we should take an initiative to help these poor people so that they can leave these evil ways.

Here are given 35 brilliant photographs expressing the real face of poverty, some of them really made me cry. It was too hard to watch these photographs and make others see how these people are living such a life around us. We must help them.

    Hello,

    We are a CSI/NGO and i was wondering if these photos belong to you or if you know who the respective owners are as we are interested in using one of them on our website.

    If you could let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    Phillip pretorius
