Some people believe that rich countries should provide poorer countries with help that is not financial aid.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In an age of economic turmoil, natural catastrophes, and coronavirus, all countries are seen to suffer an enormous economic damage for these difficulties and much worse for developing economies. The global adversity that swept the world this year exposed the vulnerability of weaker economies. Many people agreed that developed countries should assist struggling countries not just monetary support but also knowledge and other humanitarian reasons. I fully agree that wealthy nations must listen to the plights of the world’s neediest communities and extend support beyond financial assistance.

Firstly, major high income industrial countries fairly enjoy a stable economy and helping those in need will put them in history as open-handed country towards poverty-stricken nations. Extending aide program tend to have a greater impact in alleviating poor nations from poverty. This help should not be limited to financial assistance alone. Take Covid-19 for instance, as the coronavirus now spreads to poorer countries, an urgent intervention from wealthy countries is needed to prevent people from dyeing without even seen a doctor. While developing nations struggled from debt, the affluent can easily declare months of total lockdowns. Rich countries should share medical equipment and knowledge to boost developing countries response to coronavirus. 

Similarly, wealthy countries are not only awash with money but also in knowledge. The information age has increased the chance of rich countries to reach out to less-income neighbors and trained them to adopt technological change. Technical expertise from advanced economies essentially needed to be shared to these poor nations. For example, agricultural technology, third-world has limited capacity to acquire agricultural machineries for farming. Implementing technological improvements must be a priority to supplement the need of new ideas to uplift rural livelihoods. Improving productivity in the agriculture sector where the vast majority of poor people live can possibly eradicate poverty.

In conclusion, developed countries must help developing economies with financial assistance and knowledge. These countries have the resources to improve the lives of the people from poor nations. The technical know-how from affluent nations should be shared to impoverish nations and not ignore the needs of disadvantaged populations.

  1. During a natural disaster, prosperous countries should provide supplies of food and other products to the needy nations in order to help them during a crisis. In my opinion, I support the suggestion and will present some reasons why this procedure will help those poor countries.

    To begin, with the help from rich countries pressure on local government reduced and the government can think of other ways how to solve the problems within a very short time. For example, it will take some time to reach helps from different countries so in the mean time the authorities of the affected country can arrange and do some planning how to transport those products in affected area in a very short time. In other words, the officals don’t need to think multiple things in the period of a hazard they can only focus in a particular thing.(make it specific to natural disasters, explain what are the reasons developed nations should help poor countries and give clear example)

    Further, there is a very popular proverb that you can help yourself only by helping others either he is your friend or not. To be strong or to play an important role in world politics most of time financially developed countries come forward to help countries which doesn’t have enough resources to support their people in any kind of catastrophe. For instance, in recent era China is playing very important role in world politics, they have now huge support worldwide and they achieved this support by helping undeveloped countries in their difficult period. By using helping method, China became friends with lots of countries who helped them in different way when China asked for help such as, those poor countries give China to use their port. This clearly illustrates how small help can turned into profit in future.

    In conclusion, of course some argue that, wealthy nations only think about their benefit but the situation after a disaster is how difficult it can’t be proved therotically. In those situations, a little help is beyond everything else.
