Do you give money to the poor?

No and never.
Giving alms is degrading man’s nobility and it is not the solution for poverty elimination and other socio-economic problems.
Poverty will only be eliminated by fundamentally spiritual solutions such as:
Restoring human dignity.
Providing more vocational and spiritual education.
Creating more jobs.
Reforming wealth distribution by legislation on tax, subsidy, insurance, social welfare, .
Sharing profits among employers and employees.
Encouraging voluntary sharing from wealthy people.
Nations seeking ways to end wars and building world peace and so on.
Giving alms is childish practice in antiquity. Now, the mature human race, especially the governors, should think about establishing peaceful, prosperous and progressive communities all over the world.

Abdul-Baha says:
Erelong the darkness will pass away entirely, and the regions of the East will become completely illumined; enmity, hatred, ignorance and bigotry will no longer remain; the satanic powers which destroy human equality and religious unity will be dethroned, and the nations will dwell in peace and harmony under the overspreading banner of the oneness of humanity. Therefore, we supplicate the Lord our God with sincere and contrite hearts, asking aid and assistance in the accomplishment of this mighty end: that the nations shall be unified in the Word of God; that war, enmity and hatred between races, religions, native lands and denominations shall disappear and be forever unknown; and that peoples and nations shall spiritually embrace each other in the indissoluble bond and power of the love of God.
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 440)
