Children and adults all around the world are missing basic needs. Basic needs are important, everyone needs them to survive. A basic need is what you need to live for example clean water, warm clothes, shelter, food and sometimes money. If you live in a poor country or rich country, that can affect you basic needs.
In poor countries many people don’t have their essentials and in rich countries many people do have their essentials. Most of the time our governments find a way to try and help us with this problem. How many times has a person nocked on your door and asked for money or ask for a ride home because they don’t have essentials or basic needs? Each year I see people begging on the streets. When you don’t have basic needs you can get very unhealthy and in extreme measures even die.
You have the right to good quality health care and clean water, nutritious foods and a clean environment, so that you can stay healthy. Rich countries should help poorer countries achieve this.
