ome people argue that countries should have a moral obligation to help each other; on the other hand, some people argue that a large amount of aid money does not reach the poor of the world. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
It is noticeable that globalization has made countries closely connected and developed nations tend to give international aid to the more impoverished ones. Generally, I think that helping each other among countries is right and the aid can take various forms besides capital.
Those who claim aid money cannot reach the global poor mainly because the poorest nations are particularly badly governed, where corruption, official incompetence and failure to protect fundamental property rights are incapable of producing the most desirable effect of receiving aid money. It can be confirmed with the example of Africa. Every year Africa receives an enormous number of financial help from rich countries, but it is not able to make economy in Africa prosperous. Nevertheless, the point here is not that we are supposed to be skeptical of the notion of international aid itself but that the way we implement it needs to be carefully designed and different kinds of foreign assistance should be adopted accordingly.
The significance of this practice is prone to be noted. Firstly, with the support of educational resources form developed countries, an increasing number of schools have been set up in those less developed areas, so citizens there have more accesses to education, which actually promotes the development of those places in the long run Besides, with foreign investment, a growing number of employment opportunities are offered in less developed places, which contributes to more income and greater social stability for the local. Another perceived advantage is that as a result of medical donations, certain popular diseases have been controlled or eradicated in many poor nations.
In conclusion. I am in favor of the idea that richer places have a moral responsibility to help poor ones, which can promote establishing a harmonious world and encourage various countries to develop their societies together with the help of different types of international aid.
