In 1975 an official census was taken and concluded that the population of Somalia was approximately 10,616,380.2 Since then because of the famine and clan wars that have plagued Somalia, the census bureau has been unable to acquire a more recent and updated population estimate. Of the approximately 10.6 million people who call Somalia their home, in 2014 almost 35,000 living adults were infected with either HIV or AIDS.2 If that wasn’t bad enough the people of Somalia are constantly trying to avoid contracting a number of other bacteria and diseases. Some of the worst are a protozoal diarrhea, Hepatitis A&E, typhoid fever, dengue fever, malaria and rabies.2 Because of the combination of these diseases and bacteria accompanied by the
Now Sudan is on the top of the poorest countries list because most of the resouces were taken from Sudan during the 60 years span, from oil to natural gas to goods, a huge portion of them were taken by force. Sudan people lost their identity during that time, their language their clothes they were forced against their morals that they believed in. all of that was because a country wanted to benefit itself and take a short cut, Sudan now ended up with no good government, no equipped military and a weak
Conditions for the small country worsened as a devastating earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, and over 300,000 people were killed, and 1.5 million were displaced, leaving them homeless. Just months after the earthquake hit, Haiti experienced the worst cholera outbreak in recent history, killing thousands, and infecting more than 6% of the population (Cook). Despite efforts from humanitarians and charities around the world, things never seemed to get better as access to clean drinking water and safe shelter became scarce. As the environment became virtually uninhabitable, many Haitians came to the United States, seeking asylum, and an opportunity to better the lives for themselves and their
Katrina recorded top wind speeds of one hundred miles per hour and spread across four-hundred miles. Massive floods occurred in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, as well as, widespread damage recorded in Georgia and Florida. In all, Hurricane Katrina killed over two thousand people, damaged approximately ninety thousand square miles, and is currently the most costly natural disaster in US history at one hundred and forty-five billion dollars. As expected, the local and state governments were overwhelmed by this cause of events, especially dealing with the limited resources and political climate that surrounded the aftermath of Katrina. Thus, after days of delay, the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) staged their command center in New Orleans, Louisiana, where a majority of the damage
The neonatal period is the most vulnerable period of human life. A neonate is 500 times more likely to die on the first day of life compared to a child who one month age (30). Similarly, neonatal disease pattern is a sensitive indicator of availability, use, and effectiveness of mother and child health services in the community (31). This indicates that neonatal death is one of the health problems in developing countries and newborn survival has no improvement (32).
Despite our superiority, America still has a plethora of problems from within, one of them is a corrupted system of law enforcement. Our own law enforcement is one of the factors contributing to America’s downfall. What people think is keeping them safe is really just hurting them behind their backs. A publicist by the name of Shaun King has taken note that so far as of July 17, 2017, 660 people have been killed by police or some type of law enforcement. That would make this year alone to be one of the deadliest years since people had begun tracking this statistic back in 2013.
The native people of Australia suffered disruption to their rich culture as British invaders culled a large number of the 250 indigenous dialects forcing the children to learn English rather than their native languages. Only thirteen of these dialects can still be translated throughout Australia today. As well as harmful effects on the people of Australia at the time, the disrespect and mistreatment of the first Australians is sadly still evident today in Australian society. In fact, "just over half (52.2 per cent) of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged between 15 and 64 years were not employed in 2012-2013, compared with 24.4 per cent of non-Indigenous Australians." This is an undoubted representation of the negative effects of Imperialism on the indigenous people of Australia in modern society.
For example, in Afghanistan 36% of the population, lives in absolute, extreme poverty and 37% lives just above the determined poverty line. Even though around $35 billion was put into the country from 2002-2009. Even the nuber one cause of death is poverty.

Although, the movie never says why he is poor we can infer.
Although more groups of soldiers were sent in to Rwanda it was not fast enough. The UN and the OAU were both pushing for more needed equipment but supplies did not come quick enough (Rwanda,2006).”The aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide was very despicable. The effect that the genocide posed on the people of Rwanda is immeasurable.The people were tortured and terrorized as they saw those they love die and feared the loss of their own life. “It is estimated that nearly 100,000 children were orphaned, abducted or abandoned. Twenty-six percent of the Rwandan population still suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder today (Enough
Have you ever seen the effects that poverty can cause, the brains that it destroys through mental health issues or bodies it infects through physical ailments? I am writing to you to inform you of the problems that many people in society suffer from, the effects of poverty. In a novel I have recently studied call ‘The Inner Circle’ by Gary Crew he highlights this issue in the main two characters. This issue has spread all over the world and attack countries whether first, second or third-world. Global Issues has told us that at least 80% of humanity is living off less than $10 a day or that according to UNICEF 20,000 children die every day due to poverty.
