Helping suffering children

So I’m the kind of person who is interested in missions and helping those in need. When I first saw this picture (the first to your left)

I was so touched that somewhere in Africa where I come from, there’s a suffering child. I was privileged to be born into a good life but I haven’t been privileged to help as much as I would like to.

So I read the Facebook comments and this got to me, not because it has something to do with me but how people are still this narrow minded.
Someone commented:

Nigerians are so wicked

This picture was not taken in Nigeria and if it was, it has nothing to do with the country but poverty.

You live in the western world but you aren’t better than this child, though you can afford a meal.

Poverty of the mind is worse than poverty of food or money.

No matter how much you have, you won’t be wise enough to use your wealth in the right channel. God help humanity.
