Poverty rising

Published:Friday | March 18, 2016 | 3:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Why are more people applying to go on the Programme for Advancement Through Health and Education? Why are more people seeking assistance from Food For The Poor?

Why are there more beggars on the street? Why are more people finding themselves in credit card debt? Why are more people seeking jobs?

Why are more women and men turning to prostitution? Why are more people getting involved in scamming?

Why are more Christian women cheating to make ends meet? Why are many women having multiple partners to survive?

My conclusion: Poverty and unemployment are increasing.
