Let's Fight Poverty

This petition had 117 supporters

 In almost all of the places in the Philippines today, inequality—the gap between the rich and the poor—is quite high and often widening. Poverty has always been present. It is one of the biggest and most evident problems in the Philippines. Poverty and inequality in the Philippines remains a challenge.

 As the poverty in the Philippines continue to worsen, the people, mostly in the state of poverty, experiences consequences. One of which is experiencing health problems. Since they are in bad living condition and they are not able to sustain their needs, they are much prone to having health problems. Also, poverty in the Philippines increases crime rate. Poverty causes people who are desperate for money to rob and do crimes for easy cash. (Asian Development Bank, 2009) Lastly, child labor is one of the effects of poverty. Children no longer go to school in order to work to be able to survive.

 Many people suffer from poverty. In order to avoid poverty, we should solve the causes such as unequal income distribution, lack of quality education, lack of jobs, overpopulation, and corruption. If we are able to solve this problem, we would lessen poverty, thus, would help lessen health problems, crime rate and child labor.
