Salut, Thank you for accepting my debate

Intention:
Sympathize the poor's suffer. Hear the con debater
Point 01:

I watched an interview of the poor in YouTube.  
Some made their house out of a scrap that can be found in the garbage area. They use a hole to poo and the feces and garbage goes under their shelter sometimes they wrap their feces in the newspaper then throw it somewhere, their salary can only be $2 or $1 which is not enough for their needs base on their population.  some may only eat twice a week and the food is only noodles, they get water by buying to their neighbours who have faucet and have illegal connection to electricity.Some get disease but do not enough money for a cure.

Point 02:
They have no choice. Some do not have education, no job no money, nothing but illegal. No money to buy livehood but to find a poor way. No opportunites,  nothing but nothing. Selling pays low salary, kids working yet still low salary, teenager applies yet no opportunity. They lack of help.

Point 3:
Religiously speaking, The poor are to be helped not because of laziness. Bible says 'Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished' Quran says Those who establish regular Prayer, and give regular Charity, and have (in their hearts) the assurance of the Hereafter. (31:4) buddha says "give even you have little"
