The population of large cities has increased after decades of rural exodus. This situation has increased urban poverty and opened the door for the creation of ghettos and slums. A significant number of people all over the world live in extreme poverty.
In cities, it is increasingly common to see children begging on the street while people pass them with jaded indifference. Before the plight of the poor, we must ask ourselves whether we have lost our spirit of solidarity and if we have become insensitive to the suffering of others.
