I never thought that there is poverty in Australia given our really good economy. What's worse is that children are affected.

In 1987, Prime Minister Bob Hawke famously proclaimed"by 1990, no Australian child will be living in poverty". Nearly 30 years on, the promise is a distant memory, with a new report claiming one in six Australian kids -- more than 600,000 children -- currently live below the poverty line in Australia.

Poverty in general sucks, but to see kids suffering is awful.

Shouldn't taxes help with this problem. The government should have a fund.

The people must do more also. We cannot sit around and wait for government all the time.

I agree. The private sector of each country has got to do more. There is so much money out there and. I reason for anyone to starve.
