Why after nearly 100 years so little has changed. In a world where there is so much wealth,
modern cities, plentiful resources, how can we have so much poverty? Why do so
many people live on $1.00 a day? Why are families still living in shacks upon
dirt floors, scrounging to make another day’s living the dumps of Puerto
Plata? What does it mean that we allow
poverty to persist today given that we now have the ability to cure the simple
illnesses that take so many lives here?
