It is impossible to help all people in the world, so governments should only focus on people in their own countries. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

The role of one government to support citizens of other countries has been a major topic of concern in today’s society. From my perspective,
this
practice is feasible and there are compelling reasons why governments should help people in the global community rather than only focusing on the citizens of their own countries. In
this
context of globalisation and international integration, the provision of
assistance
to peoples of all countries in the world is not an impossible task anymore. One explanation for
this
is that modern means of transport have transformed the way that international
assistance
could be given, and now
assistance
could reach even the most remote places on Earth.
For example
, thousands of victims of a deadly earthquake in a mountainous city in Nepal were rescued by US and German military helicopters in 2014. One
further
explanation is that thanks to international banking, the international community could offer a helping hand to any country where the financial system is on the verge of collapse. An excellent example of
this
is that the saving money of millions of taxpayers and pensioners in Greece was saved by a timely act of the European Commission of injecting a huge amount of bailout money into Greek banks in 2009. I strongly believe any government must assume the responsibility of helping citizens in other countries.
This
is mainly because assisting inhabitants in other countries, to some extent, is synonymous to assisting people in the home country. In 2014, hundreds of US and UK doctors and nurses were sent to African countries to cope with the outbreak of Ebola, a dreadful plague, which had killed many thousands by that time.
This
action prevented the plague from
further
spreading to other nations, including the US and the UK themselves, considering that there was a free movement of people between countries and there were millions of African migrant workers in the US and the UK at that time.
In addition
, the act of supporting people all around the world may promote a sense of humanity, which is essential to the sustainable development of the world, because humanity is the foundation of peace and stability. To conclude, governments must provide
assistance
for citizens of other countries for a clear reason that
this
feasible act could simultaneously enhance a global sense of humanity and assure their own nationals of a proper living environment.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
