Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: In full, âOvercoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice, like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.
We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked, and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
