I disagree that giving aid to poor countries has more negative effects. There are negative
effects, no doubt, but positive effects are certainly more

Talking about the negative effects, the major one is that poor countries could become over
dependant and stop making efforts of their own. This would halt the long term progress of
the poor countries. Secondly, the aid given by rich countries could go into corrupt hands and
not reach those for whom it was meant for. Then, the aid may not be that useful. For
example, the people’s need may be clothes and food but the aid may be in the form of
making a bridge or something like that which people may not need. Finally, the rich
countries may have their own selfish motives behind giving aid. For instance, they may
provide employment but they may be underpaying and exploiting the poor.

The advantages of the rich countries helping the poor are manifold. To begin with,
nowadays we belong to a global village and all countries are so interconnected that all
problems that arise because of poverty – crime, terrorism and diseases will directly or
indirectly affect the rich countries. It is a well known fact that terrorists can infiltrate the rich
countries and cause violence and crime there. Moreover, if poor countries suffer diseases
then these diseases can spread to the neighbouring rich countries. So, it can be said that it is
a necessity for the rich to save the poor in order to save themselves. It has been well said by
John F Kennedy that “if a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save
the few who are rich”.

Furthermore, there are many problems which the world is facing today, such as global
warming, which can be solved by joint efforts of all countries. Such joint efforts can only be
possible if the gap between the rich and poor is narrowed. This can only be achieved if the
haves help the have-nots. Finally, the rich countries also have a moral duty to help the poor.
They should help them on humanitarian grounds.

To conclude, I reiterate by saying that the rich must help the poor. However, it must be well
researched first as to what sort of help is most needed. Help can be provided in the form of
food, medicine and education.
