I'm not sure. Donating money to international organizations is a good start. Also sending physical donations to groups that take them where they're needed.

Now with the Internet the country isn't important, Isn't a wall ... You just have to have the connection. And join 7 cups of tea and you can start helping people, talking with them and trying to show them that you are listening them.

From my experience I have talked to a girl from another country with a few problems and I was able to help her talk them through. I just talked over an online web and we never gave each other personal details

I help them the only way I know how to help. By talking to them. Talking to anyone not from your country isnt any different than the rest. We're all humans and we do what we can by talking and listening

There are a number of charities online that you can sign up to that help the poor and homeless. I myself have done these before and they are a very good cause

Due to not being 18, I wasn't able to donate using my own bank account. However, my neighbours and fellow youth group leaders did several fundraising events in Australia for children and families in Borneo and Fiji. I participated in several events and it was amazing as I enjoyed volunteering. Although I wasn't able to fly over there, but I knew I helped them indirectly and this made me really happy. :) Now my birthday being in a few days, I know I can finally have the chance to donate to all those charities and foundations I see advertised on TV daily. E.g. WHO, International Animal Rescue, The Fred Hollows Foundation, Red Cross etc.

Try reaching out to different charities or raising money. In some situations its good to travel to a countrie and find out whats happening it may help you too find out whats really happening

By listening to them and their issues. Sometimes all they need is someone who wont judge them and someone to bring support from the distance.

Sign up to become a Peace Corp member online. You will have many opportunities to travel to third world countries in order to help the needy. Also, you can donate money to your favorite organizations to help them out financially. Best wishes. - Nate

Join the Peace Corp. Apply to be a civil servant. Teach English abroad. Advocate for a certain cause that involves another country, volunteer for the organization: community outreach, fundraisers, PR, web development, etc. House an exchange student. All a good start.

By becoming a listener here or discussing matters with them privately. The best thing you can do is listen

You can communicate with them via online by providing support and help. You can also use other means like public services and so on.

By talking to them. Listening to what their problem is and offer empathy and care. Only when you talk to them you know what the real problem is and can find a good solution

You can help through 7cupsoftea if you feel so. There are many people who dont get mental support and you can make a great contribution here towards humanity

There are many ways you can help in other countries. Join an organization. Consider Amnesty International or other organizations of the sort. If you cannot travel, I am sure these groups will be able to assign you something more realistic and fitting to your schedule.

If your far away, and they need help, you can always use the internet and talk to them there, mail, etc

I would like to think that I could help people in other cou tries, especially families in third world countries with monetary contributions but also contributions such as care packages that contain needed items like toiletries and maybe bottled water.

Donating to charities can help other countries. Also starting petitions can help if you're trying to get your country to help them.

By first considering culture and also that they will have many similarities to your own self. You can help anyone if you stay positive and listening attentively.

If you are looking to help people in other countries, you can always donate, or find websites that specifically support countries going through tough times, and poverty.

Show them love amd support when they need it, some people need emotional help more than other types of help.

You can help them online only. Of course, if there are a chance to meet them live, use it and say everything eye-to-eye. If you call them or text online, say everything like in reality.

Does not matter in what country they are as long as u know how to connect. For me is helpful to know a little bit of their culture or religion then u can choose the right way to guide them out of darkness or make them confortable in it.

I could learn their language that would help. But I do not know anything in another language. I am sorry.

If you are a 7cups listener then you are helping people worldwide as you will listening to and guiding all kinds of people from all over the world, people with different views, cultural backgrounds, race and beliefs. It is a challenging and yet rewarding experience to touch people all over the globe through 7cups.

There are volunteer trips if you have the money where you can personally help people in other countries, otherwise for the most part it is lending support or donating money to verified organizations.

a good way to help other people in other countries is to find a good reputable charity and donate your time,money, things you dont need which could be useful to them or even just try to raise awareness of their problems through social media is a good way to start
