Poverty in Pakistan

There is so much poverty in my country, and we don’t want to look at as its so distressing and we feel helpless what to do.  So we numb ourselves and go about our lives, blinding ourselves to the stark poverty and suffering all around us. Yes we do little charity to satisfy our hearts, but then shut our selves in our lives and pretend that it’s not our responsibility. The government should do something, we think and then we forget about it. When I look at these images it tugs at my heart and makes me wish that God guides and helps me to do something meaningful and substantial for my people and my country, inshallah.
