This is an image of and African child in poverty giving candy to a cameraman. What this image means to me is that as a society we should be more supportive of each other and share more. The image represents a message that says "if a child that has nothing is still willing to give, then why can't we?" The image motivates me because I look at this as a message to me, that someone always sees when a good deed is delivered. And it makes me want to be more caring of others.
Studies are showing that the stress of living in poverty not only makes it harder to access healthcare when people get sick, but makes people sicker to begin with. “Prescribing” people bikes, safe housing or good food may not seem like medical care, but could it work to balance the toll of stress? Public health work at its finest!
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: In full, “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice, like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”
