Should you give money to beggars on the streets of first world countries?
There are homeless people in many countries - you should always be mindful and helpful to those less fortunate. I have given food and water to the homeless and occasionally money - although many times money simply allows them to feed a habit like drinking/drugs which may have helped contribute to their situation.
I do believe in helping others regardless of where they are from - it's called being a good human being.
No, I don't think we should because it is hard to know if you are aiding someone's addiction or breaking the law. The best is to give your charitable contributions to ministerial associations or homeless shelters so they can continue to operate and help the needy.
In the first countries or not, i feel that one should give alms to beggars but I am careful not to give to any body because some of them do pretend.I will rather give to someone that I know is genuinely begging or in need.
Not often, but on occasion I have. Or sometimes if they say they need food I will give them food.
yes i give them whenever they meet me...bocz they need our help and i think we should keep help them .....
