The world’s economy has been growing rapidly for many decades already. However, there are a lot of poor and homeless people particularly in developing countries. In my opinion, governments should provide such people with housing. This is due to basic principles of morality.
To start with, people’s need for home is considered fundamental from the ancient times. Everyone needs a roof over his head to survive as well as every animal needs nests, holes and other forms of hideaway. Only homeless people can understand the sufferings of not having a shelter. My personal experience is a compelling example of this. A few years ago I often had to see poor people on my way to school and how they strove to make ends meet. As a rule, they could not manage decent meal and cloth living every day under the open sky. They went through the trash, in order to keep body and soul together. This is inhuman and the governments have a natural obligation to guarantee the living places for people.
Secondly, it is no big secret that lots of people are forced to leave their homes because of natural calamities or wars. Frequently, they are compelled to do humbling work to earn living. In this case, rich nations, the governments should raise their helping hand to support people. That is what makes us human. For instance, our government helped all the people who lost their homes in the flooding of Amur River. They got an essential aid, in order to restart their households. The affair gave rise to a considerable public attention. Under those circumstances, our nation literally came together. We have learned a lesson in the value of home and basic human needs.
In my final analysis, a living place is extremely important for the human being, and the civilized government should do its best to make sure there are no homeless people in the country.
