With so much poverty at home, why does China give out so much money to other developing countries?

One could ask same in case of USA.

Chicago's Shame
Monday, June 29, 1953
PrintEmailReprintsshareLinkedInStumbleUponRedditDiggDel.i.ciousTweet Buried on an inside page, the Chicago Daily News three months ago ran a short, shocking story. "Rats chewed to death a nine-months-old girl," said the 90-word item, "as she lay in her crib in her West Side home [last night]." Few readers felt the impact of the story more than the News's Managing Editor Everett Norlander. Months before, he had planned a series on Chicago's 23 square miles of crawling, crumbling slums, abandoned the idea because he thought it was too big a job. "But I couldn't get that rat-bite case out of my head," said Norlander, "and we decided we couldn't hold off." Last week, after two months of intensive work by an eleven-man News task force led by Reporter Roy ("Mac") Fisher, 34, the News began a notable ten-part series on slums ("The City's Shame") that shocked Chicago.

Giving credit to where credit is due and that is not to be disputed that the CPC had lifted

more than 300 millions of China's hard core poor from abject poverty. However, ..........


As Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao quoted an ancient sage, saying that:


"one only reached halfway even though it has reached 90 kilometers of the

total 100 kilometers".


China still faces various challenges. To get rid of poverty among all the 1.3 billion Chinese people,

to let everybody enjoy the rights of education, medical care and social insurance is still a long way

to go,

"thus CPC needs to reflect on itself, try to overcome its own shortcomings, accept

people's supervision, follow its charter and continue to lead people to realize the

goal of living a wealthy and healthy life for all the Chinese people by 2050.



Note:

Those many photos showing in this column act as the milestones and constant reminders

as to the distance the CPC's pledge is still from its goal!

A 19-year-old high school student in Yuzhou, Central China's Henan province,

has been running 30 kilometers a day between home and school to save the

9-yuan ($1.4) fare, for two years, chinanews.com reported Friday.







Why can't one of the many billionaires in China donate to this poor

student, a second-hand bicycle at the lest. I am sure this is not

asking for too much; or is it?
