Should developed nations do more to help developing nations?



 I believe that developed nations should do more to help developing nations for the following two reasons.
 The first reason is that the wealth gap between developed nations and developing nations is just so unfair on humanitarian grounds. People in developing nations are forced to live in intolerable conditions just because of geography, where they are born. For example, over 1.2 billion people lack access to clean water, and many children suffer from and died of curable diseases, just because they were born in poor countries. This is just so sad and inhumane. As human beings, developed nations should save people in developing nations.
 The second reason is that it is beneficial not only to developing nations but also to developed nations. Generally, in many cases, poverty is one of the main causes of many serious problems such as overpopulation, crime, terrorism, war, etc. These things are menacing to the world. Hence, not only for developing nations but also for their own sake, it is only natural and almost inevitable for developed nations to help developing nations.
 In conclusion, I believe that developed nations should do more to help developing nations for the aforementioned two reasons.
