  • I believe so

    I believe that they should give aid, though not through money and food, but through education. First world countries should be able to send people over to third world countries to give children a complete education, and to teach adults how to properly grow crops.

  • At least the money will go towards good!

    Absolutely, I think rich countries such financially assist poor countries. I figure, why not? This is a firm example of extra money going towards a good cause. I think a more wealthy country helping out another respected country that may not have the same financial resources is a very good thing.

  • Just a little bit

    Give them as help as they need to stand up. Otherwise, the nation relying on aids, will have no self respect. Rich nation work on give and take principle, that country getting aid will be under debt and unable to pay that because of less resources. County must rely on their own resources and try to built new resources. Educate the people about crises and how they can help their country because man power is every thing. After world war II, japans economy bent but they didn't ask for help and depend on their own resources and now they are world's fastest growing economy.

  • YES of course

    Because rich countries have what they need, but poor countries don't. It is important that the rich countries help the developing ones so that the gap between LEDCs, and MEDs would be smaller. Also, it is important that people in the developing countries to get food. Rich countries have food to eat, but poor counties don't. Benefit for just yourself is not important. Sharing is Caring.

  • We only have one earth, we must work together to help keep it thriving, this includes helping other countries.

    Our ability to help other people whether they are far or near shouldn't matter. The insistence of how we can help other countries and not question should we help? I feel like no matter where we live in this world we all need help at some point, and we get it through the kind acts of others. The question is not about making other places learn to be independent but helping them to come up past their struggles.

  • We are all innocent

    We were all born the same and equal. Why shouldn't we help them. Just like our prime minister keeps saying: everyone is equal and has the same rights. So what if you don't get the new iPhone 6. People depend on this money just to fulfill their basic needs, let alone something we don't need. All of these other reasons are all useless. If we all think that we shouldn't give away our money, who's going to help them. If you think just a couple hundred dollars is too much, then don't call yourself a human, call yourself a murderer because just when you are reading this, hundreds are dying because you wouldn't spare those couple dollars.

  • We are all innocent

    When we were born, we are all the equal. It should stay that way. Why is our prime minister making democracy and everyone equal a must while poor countries are suffering. So what if you don't get you're iPhone 6. People need the money just to fulfill their basic needs, let alone something we don't need!

  • Help them from different aspects

    Powerful countries seems to like the way poor countries are as a strategy for some political reasons. Supporting is not only food, some say don't give them so they won't rely on us, but it's wrong because they are human and the difference is that they were born in this poor nation, but what rich countries can do is invest in there countries raise there economy both will benefit, ex Sudan has one of the Appropriate climate to grow, it could be the best in planting trade but there is no support from rich countries or let's call it investment to improve there level of living. I think supporting them from different ways will let them stand on there feet and run their own country

  • I think so.

    I definitely think that our richer countries should help the poorer ones, but I think instead of giving the government all of the money , they should help and train people from those countries so the money doesnt just go in the government workers pockets. That's just my opinion. Thanks.

  • No, they should not

    Poor countries will rely on the rich ones and they won't be able to stop depending on them. When the rich countries stop helping the poor ones, their economy will go down once again. Also,the money usually doesn't go where the people need it. There might be corruption in the country and he money doesn't even reach the population.

  • No, they should not

    While it would seem helpful for richer countries to aid the poorer ones we need to consider a few key points first. One thing to consider is that poorer countries are usually poor for a reason. Either they have no resources, or they have a corrupt government system that only benefits those in power. Egypt was a great example of this. For years the US gave them around 2 billion dollars per year in foreign aid. 1.3 billion of this was spent on military funding for Egypt, while the rest predominately went to lining Hosni Mubarak's and other government officials wallets. So yes, maybe some poorer countries deserve foreign aid, but it would have to be with many conditions on how the money is spent and limited to those countries that have a democratic system in place.

  • From my own personal point

    We just have to keep going toward our own target... Before reaching that aim we even will be needed some aid. Thats why i think like that... Right you may talk about humanity, donation or other forms of aid... But if we are in the road of our aim we shouldn't need this

  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Wayyy they shouldn't

    There fault. The US has been around less time than Africa. They are fine, so why isn't Africa? Because the US has a democracy, and makes better decisions to become a World Power. The way i see it is Africa can do this by themselves if we can, so leave them alone

  • Maybe NOT because

    No countries so innocent to help others. They have their own problems to look after. After all if they do this, they might be doing this to influence the people of that country and hold power in that country. For example, India was captured by the British in The same way. And even if they help, they should help not by giving Resources but by spreading education. Otherwise, this might lead to loans.

  • Maybe not because

    I suppose not because if poor countries will be even more dependent on richer countries in fact this will make it good for a short time but if somehow the rich country can not donate money to the poor one... What will happen? Also another problem would be "Where does the money go?" because many times poor countries are also corrupted, so the money will go to the government instead of the population-
