Hunger and Poverty in my country

Back in my country, Philippines, poverty is widespread. Even though you see advancement in infrastructure, you can see the face of poverty and hunger in the slums within the city. You can see small children spending the night in the streets, looking in trash bins for left over and throw away foods to satisfy their grumbling stomachs.

For my personal view one of the reasons why amidst the advancement in my country, people in the low level have lost hope to rise up and bring back dignity in their lives. Some of this poverty stricken people are capable of a decent job to bring food in their table. The problem is they don't realize their capacity to be fruitful, as I barrow a line from a the Gawad Kalinga founder, Tony Meloto, "They have lost to dream".

We people who are in good standing and the governments should be able to bring back to this people the dignity to rise up from this poverty and lead these people to be self sufficient and in turn help other people to realize their potential.
