Developed countries have a responsibility to give aid to developing countries because immigration issues can be reduced by educational and healthcare assistance

Have you ever wondered whether developed countries have a responsibility to assist developing countries or not, and what is the negative impact for developed countries if they do not help other developing countries? People in developing countries suffer from financial, economical, educational and healthcare problems. Consequently, these problems make their life more difficult and reduce standards of living such as lack of education and poor level of healthcare. As a result, those difficulties are leading them to emigrate by legal or illegal methods to other countries especially to developed countries where they can find a better life. For example, Canada is one of the most developed countries which many immigrants and refugees are trying to enter and reside. In addition, it welcomed approximately 12,098 refugees in 2010 ("Citizenship and immigration Canada media", 2011). The case of Canada is an example of how refugees can cause a strain on developed countries. To reduce the number of refugees, developed countries must provide educational and healthcare assistance for developing countries which suffer from low standards of living, poor education and low quality health care. Education and healthcare are the most important factors which contribute to the development process for developing countries. Education become a necessity because it helps people to develop their life, society and country by improving their learning and practicing skills (The Center for Global Development, 2006). Low quality of education is a common problem in developing countries (Kremer M. & Holla A., 2008, P.2). It refers to fewer numbers of schools, teachers and textbooks which reduce people's chances to be educated, especially in large population countries (Kremer M. & Holla A., 2008, P.14). Moreover, the weakness of educational policies and evaluations leads to weak educational programs and contexts which result in low students' achievement (Bonuti S., 2012, P.5). Healthcare is another essential factor of developing for underdeveloped countries to have a healthy society through limiting different disease as much as possible. Healthcare problems create other difficulties for developing nations. One difficulty is weakness of healthcare system such as referral system leads to have a low quantity of providing health for people (Chudi I.P., 2010, P.11). Also, low quality of healthcare may result from poor planning for health programs which need more appropriate policies (Thomas V., 2009, P.2). Limitations of health education programs and small number of healthcare centers and specialists are other problems which cause a poor healthcare (Thomas V., 2009, P.2). Those complications make life more difficult and many of them are trying to immigrate by legal or illegal methods to urban nations which have better facilities. These difficulties can be reduced by developed countries which can provide educational aid to enhance the standards of living for underdeveloped populations. Developed countries can increase the quality of education of underdeveloped nations by increasing the number of schools and inputs, improving teaching methods through training courses and enhancing teachers motivations (Kremer M. & Holla A., 2008, P.14). In addition, strengthening programs can be done by refining and creating developed educational policies which are needed for higher learning and increasing student's participation and research (Bonuti S., 2012, P.8). Moreover, educational process can be enhanced by increasing the number of organizations and foundations such as the Hewlett Foundation, which has many programs and goals to solve...
