in this world many people are very rich but most are very poor ,even they unable to earn for a single time food in a day. they need food for their life ,one day i saw a poor old man about age around 75y,he was finding the food in garbage bin. the same time a dog came and took the bread piece from the old man. this seen filled with the pain in my heart.i decide to help those people who do not help themselves. like this if every take a responsibility to help even a single person can change the equation of poverty in this world .

Yes, i would agree with you. Though there are sometimes exceptions for me..I'm more into helping people who are "obviously" helplessly poor. For example, I give whenever I see an old man in the streets who cannot walk and striving to get to it day by day. It really pities me to see those old ones. But sometimes, there are many beggars who are in good body conditions and especially young ones who can find some work instead of just hanging around the streets.

It's Okay to help someone who are really in great needs. I can't really help it to saw people who are begging for help. I do also give sometimes a little help to beggars which are seen on the corners of the street. Such a fastidious feeling after you help someone and saw a smile in their face. But in my opinion, there will be no poor people if only they help themselves and set aside their paroxysm. And there will be no such a hard thing only if you want it.

Why is it that very poor old man left alone in the street looking for food? In many cities you will also find many beggars young and old asking any amount of money for food. I sometimes give to the deserving beggar especially the handicapped because I observed that others are capable to look for a decent work to . Others are taking advantage by using small children to beg to earned a living. I really pity these children instead of going to school they are in the street to beg. I hope the government will do something to give them shelter and finance an institution and they could be send to school and be educated . Likewise, to have some volunteers to help and guide these children to become responsible and be independent in the future.

i feel what you do for others. i understand that you really want to help, one person at a time. i admire the generosity in you. but it will be endless stream of acts of generosity to make an impact of difference. what if we try to influence the decisions of policy-makers and government officials to direct the resources and services to the poor. in this way, we will be able to help more people.

I always hear these words from people. but the problem is we get engrossed in our own problems that charity disappears from our minds. Everybody have their own wants. A middle class man is worried about his inability to buy a BMW car, but forgets that atleast he has a peaceful life. We always have complaints and dont care about others. Its nice to see few people like you who have atleast shown some kindness towards the needy

yeah I guess you are true. I would like to help the old people on the streets but not the young and middle aged. giving them makes them more dependent when they can wok somewhere fine. I think people of 70s must be in the old age if they don't have a place to stay. they will be better taken care there. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.
