Is poverty in the world?” Do you agree?

I agree with this statement because if there are people suffering in the world then others should at least give money to help them.  If there were a lot of rich parts of a country there would be more money for the rest of the country that is poor. If there are many children dying of starvation then why can not rich people live a basic, comfortable lifestyle like other middle class people and give away any extra money to help the poor. .  

Robert McNamara says “Absolute poverty is a condition of life so characterized by malnutrition, illiteracy, disease, high infant mortality and low life expectancy as to be beneath any reasonable definition of human dignity”.  I believe that Absolute poverty is what poor people cannot get out of as they have no money to buy tools to grow food so therefore they can not sell them or buy anything else which is a trap with no way out but I think that if rich people give away money to help them but these tools and seeds then there is a possible way out of poverty.  The majority of people in developing countries earn about £100 while people in the UK earn more than this in one week and even some people earn more than this in one day.
