You can’t feed people out of poverty — Eldee



Rapper Eldee The Don has said that feeding is not a solution when there is widespread poverty.

In a tweet, Eldee The Don said that what people need is a skill and an opportunity enabling environment.

He wrote:

“Guys, remember that you can not feed people out of poverty. It is not sustainable. Feeding is a short term fix when poverty is widespread. Skill and opportunity enabling empowerment is what the people need, so that they can feed themselves.”

Below are some reactions to his post.
