Poverty refers to the unable to afford basic human needs, which commonly includes nutrition, health care, education, clothing and shelter. Poor children are much more likely to suffer from hunger, fatigue, irritability, headaches. These illnesses could potentially restrict a child or student's focus and concentration. Poverty increases the risk of homelessness. Slum-dwellers, who make up a third of the world's urban population, live in poverty no better.

There are several relationships between intolerable economic inequality and war. Today 2.7 billion people live on less than $2 a day - 1.1 billion on less than $1 per day. 18 million of our fellow humans die each year from poverty-related causes. In 2006, 1.1 billion people lacked safe drinking water, and waterbourne diseases killed an estimated 1.8 million people. The developing countries are also the scene of a resurgence of other infectious diseases, such as malaria, drug-resistant tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.

Poverty becomes an obstacle to future success before a child is even born. Since poor women are more likely to be uninsured, they often wait to seek proper prenatal care. The stressful situations that often accompany poverty, such as death, job loss or drug addiction can create feelings of anxiety and depression that can last well into adult hood. Generational poverty is thought by many to be one of the most difficult long-term effects of poverty to fix. When entire families are struggling to meet their basic needs, a "culture of poverty" begins to be formed.
In our country if we see, there are many children under 18 who are doing smuggling & many criminal work.becoz of money. By the way, if we will see that is not their fault .this is our fault. We do not give scope them to improve.
Especially two types of people doing smuggling.
1...Poor people who have no money to get food.
2...Money hunger. Who is ready to sell his country for money
3.we spend a lots of our money for war purpose …
When a poor child steal anything we beat them ... at that time we forget HUMANITY. We complain at the police...by the way they do this type of work for survive...but when this thing has done by some higher post officer means any "I.A.S OFFICER,MLA,MINISTER"THEY ARE ALSO ONE TYPE OF THIEF...because they take money from us..."WE USE A NICE WORD FOR THEM (CORRUPTTED POEPLE)"...THEY BEG BEFORE US FOR MONEY...IF U WILL PAY THIS MUCH MONEY THEN I CAN DO YOUR TRANSFER" ...BLA BLA...
But no one tell them anything because they have money & they have power...this is the only reason...by the way they get money from these poor people who do suicide because of not getting food,selter,.."IN INDIA IF YOU WILL SEE THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE DIE FOR HUNGER,MANY FARMERS DO SUICIDE BECAUSE OF NOT GETTING MONEY FOR IMPROVE THEIR FIELD...OR ...PRODUCT...ETC"...
Many women become victims of trafficking, the most common form of which is prostitution, as a means of survival and economic desperation. When we see a prostate women we hate them...by the way that is not their fault... this is this society's fault who forced them to doing this...many people become drug addicted...we called them UNSOCIALISED PEOPLE...we can't understand the hidden cry in their heart...
Hunger is most important for every one...one can live without shelter but not without food...by the no one can live without food...
Six million children die of hunger every year - 17,000 every day.
Poor nutrition plays a role in at least half of the 10.9 million child deaths each year-over five million deaths
Children who are poorly nourished suffer up to 160 days of illness each year. Under nutrition magnifies the effect of every disease, including measles and malaria. The estimated proportions of deaths in which under nutrition is an underlying cause are roughly similar for diarrheal (61%), malaria (57%), pneumonia (52%), and measles (45%) (Black 2003, Bryce 2005). Malnutrition can also be caused by diseases, such as the diseases that cause diarrheal, by reducing the body's ability to convert food into usable nutrients.
In developing countries, almost one out of every 15 children will die before they reach the age of five

The main cause of child hunger is poverty.
Extreme poverty remains an alarming problem in the world is developing countries, despite some progress that reduced "dollar-now $1.25-a day" poverty from (an estimated) 1900 million people in 1981 to an estimated 1,345 million poor people in 2005 (World Bank 2008), a reduction of 29 percent over the period. Two significant, but less important, causes are conflict, often euphemistically referred to as a 'man-made disaster.' In addition, natural disasters s mochas droughts and floods. Both conflict and natural disasters as causes of hunger occur almost exclusively in poor countries.
Poverty causes other aspects of children's poor health, not only their hunger, increasing the impact of both hunger and other types of poor health...
To take a key example, poor children live in urban slums or in poor agricultural communities without sewers or other sanitation facilities for removal of human and animal excrement or garbage removal. This lack of sanitation can cause sickness, and by affecting the water supply, cause sickness by contaminating water supplies. From these sources, children get diarrheal, to name just one important example. Diarrheal keeps children from getting enough nutrients from their food and thus is an important cause of hunger, especially wasting.
Hunger is also a cause of poverty.
By causing poor health, low levels of energy, and even mental impairment, hunger, especially in childhood can lead to even greater poverty by reducing people's ability to work and learn.
We spend a lots of our money for war purpose
I could not understand if all we same then why there is war why there is so violence .we spend lots of money for military to save our country. But if we concentrate on only our development then poverty could be abolish through this & world will become peaceful, but we people always destroy our own peace. there are many underdeveloped countries are there ,if we help them then after that no more poverty will be there & we all live with peaceful manner. I couldn't understand why we quarrel among each other. May be we forget we belongs to each other.
We all are same. Help each other for their improvement & make poverty a history.
IF U CAN'T FEED HUNDRED AT LEAST FEED ONE .
