I think if we were paid $17 dollars per week or lets be generous and say $50 but groceries, housing and clothing is just as much as it is here we would want out of the poverty too. Yes it is that bad in some places, I saw people living in makeshift houses of cardboard and metal the size of bathrooms. These parts of town were huge. I saw families living in old railroad cars. People risk their lives to files this poverty. Perhaps a husband lost his job, perhaps they fled so their son was not forced into the drug trade. It is not for us to judge but to show compassion and treat others how we would want to be treated.
