Though we all try to do something in this world, at the end of the day what matters most is the kind of work we have done to help our fellow human beings. All the other work we do such as the businesses we run or the office work we do for a company is to help our lives. Indirectly, they also help us to do some good in the world by providing the resources we want to make a change like money or influence in the world.
Anyone in the world has the ability to make an impact in the world with any kind of humanitarian work they choose to do. The impact you can make can change according to your position in the society.
Humanitarian Work as a Normal Person
Most of us fall into this category. We do not have to be well known in order to help other people. We can contribute to the society in the smallest way possible. For some of us donating some clothes to the poor or the homeless could be the best thing we are able to do. For some of us going to work with a team of people who are building houses for the poor can be the best we can do. Then, there can also be some of us who have the ability to make a great contribution to a charity of our choice with the money we have. We all have our different abilities. We can use them to help the society. As long as we are doing something good for the fellow human beings it does not matter if what we can give is a one free meal for someone hungry or millions of dollars as a donation.
Humanitarian Work as a Well Known Member of the Society
People who are well known and respected in the society have a better ability to help those in need. If you look at someone like desmond teo yen koon he is a well known entrepreneur. He is also respected for his humanitarian work. Such a person can make all of us aware of what is going on in certain parts of the society and get our help to those in need of such help. Only people who are well known in the society can get the necessary exposure to important matters in a short time.
Making an impact in the world with the humanitarian work you do is something for everyone to focus on. We can all make our contributions.
