Developed countries should help developing countries. Depending on the resources and the ability of the country to help the other country can lead to a good working relationship in the future. I do not believe that one country should step in and aide in battles when fighting with someone else. That just leads to unnecessary casualties.
Yes, developed countries should help developing countries. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if developed countries would acknowledge the struggles of developing countries and offer a helping hand? Developed countries could get together and develop schedules where volunteer teams could donate a specific amount of time to help, then rotate out and be replaced by a fresh team. So many developing countries would be grateful for just the basics such as clean water, food and basic health care.
Apart from the fact that helping your neighbor is a good thing, we need to recognize that the world is becoming more tightly drawn into a global community. It's no longer the case that developing countries are isolated and on their own. What happens in one place can have effects on the global stage, so we need to recognize that we are dependent on each other. Helping a growing country to develop can only benefit all.
Yes, devolved countries should help developing countries. If you are lucky enough to live in an area of the word that is doing well, good for you. However we should all be concerned with the fact that not everyone has the same quality of life. We need to help as much as we can.
More people that survive means an increased world population leading to increased strain on resources. Also, the united states in deep in debt and we can't afford to help others if we cannot help ourselves. Plus, why should we help another nation if they can potentially become stronger than us?
Having lived in the Dominican Republic for a few years outside of my normal life living in Boston as well as Salt Lake City, I have come to realize that any "aid" that we have given to undeveloped countries has caused more issues that it has fixed.
The U.S. often will give relief packages, such as donated clothing, soap, food etc. to underdeveloped countries. This is a huge problem! I have seen first hand how these goods are handled. The government takes them in with a smile of thanks, but immediately turns around and sells the goods to the wealthier shop owners for twice their value, who then turnaround and sell the goods off at an even greater price (being usually expensive American made products, they get away with it). This does nothing but make the poor poorer and the rich richer since nobody living outside of the cities living on a dirt floor can afford such luxuries. It's a corrupt system of dealing that we as Americans often do not see on the outside.
Now, are all third world and near-third world countries like this? I don't know, I haven't traveled all of them, but it is definitely something that we need to be more mindful of in the future.
