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.
Poverty will only be eliminated by fundamentally spiritual solutions:
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:

“The Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh advocate voluntary sharing, and this is a greater thing than the equalization of wealth. For equalization must be imposed from without, while sharing is a matter of free choice.”

(Abdul-Baha, Lights of Guidance, p. 549)
All human problems
Need spiritual solutions
With true brotherhood
