Heartbreaking Poverty Photos

It really hurts me to see such photos that express poverty, that is why I share some of the most beautiful photos expressing poverty to encourage you to do something awesome today to such poor people.

Having a deep look at these photos will show how strong people they are living in poverty and struggling to help themselves and their children. I hope you find these poverty photos inspiring and let us know what do you think?

One Comment on “Heartbreaking Poverty Photos”

  1. Beautiful photographs, though I must say not all of these depict “poverty” as we understand it here in the States. Some of the children and women may have worn out clothes, and the buildings/surroundings are not what we are accustomed to, but depending on where they each was taken, some of the subjects may be living at a subsistence farmer level with a roof over head and meals each day. Since I did not take them I don’t know where they were taken, though it looks like the bag on the woman’s head says Cameroon. Some of the other photos of children (in the window and the one smiling directly into the camera in the worn out shirt) also look like they were taken in Africa. I lived in Botswana for 6 years and have many photos of children and families just like these. It took me a while to become accustomed to village life, but I soon found that the daily life of the families was much nicer than what appeared on the surface. Their homes were not cluttered with “unnecessary things” they we are addicted to purchasing, but the kids went to school, ate meals at school and at home and kept their clothes clean. The average income for the subsistence farming families was what we consider poverty, but they did not live impoverished lives.
