Developing countries require help offered by international organizations to ensure healthy and sustainable development. Some people think that financial aid is important. Others believe that practical aid and advice is more important.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
It is quite common to provide international aid to poor countries these days. Some people think financial support is more important than practical aid. I believe that if these aids should be combined with each other in order to achieve the best beneficial results.
Financial funds given directly to developing countries may pose a threat to the society and cause many related problems, like corruption. Countries that receive funds on a regular basis may develop a reliance on this source of finance. Also, authorities will take advantage of this opportunity and try to use the money for other purposes. In the end, citizens in developing countries cannot enjoy the benefit of these financial aids.
Practical aid and advice, on the other hand, may contribute more. International organizations can build public facilities schools, libraries to offer locals opportunities to receive education in order to find jobs in the future. The positive effects may not be seen in a short period of time, but in the long run, the educated workforce will break their country’s reliance on financial aid from other countries and boost their economy independently.
In my opinion, I believe that financial aid and for sustainable development are equally important for people in developing countries. International organizations can support these financially struggling countries with funds especially when their citizens are suffering from serious problems like famine. While if it is not in an emergent situation. Instead of asking for money, many of these countries truly need technicians to teach them how to build power plants and dams. So, donators may double check with recipients and make sure that the aid is what they really need.
