What is poverty?

There are three different types of poverty. Extreme poverty, moderate poverty and a bit of poverty. People in New Zealand sometimes suffer a little bit of poverty but they still have clothing, food, water and shelter. But other places are not so lucky as us. They suffer from hunger, no drinking water, no shelter and no new clothes, wearing rags. A lot children can’t go to school because they have to work. The work is not easy, you may have to carry seven bricks on your head or keep bending down in the rice paddies. This would make you feel sweaty and thirsty and tired.

I feel sad because spreading around the whole world and it is killing people. I wish poverty didn’t exist.
