Developed countries may not be bound by law to help undeveloped nations

Developed countries may not be bound by law to help undeveloped nations, but it should be seen as their responsibility, seeing as how they have the power to do so. We all live on the same planet, and we all use the same resources, so isn’t it the moral thing to do? There are many reasons as to why developed countries may help undeveloped ones, these reasons include humanitarian reasons (these include spiritual and religious beliefs), influence the government of the country, or even to get control of that countries natural supplies.
First off, we have the humanitarian reasons. A country’s religious beliefs may include promoting human welfare in other countries. Many countries believe it’s there moral responsibility to help other countries dealing with struggles such as war, disease, drought, etc. These countries giving to other countries due to moral beliefs can be comparable to people who donate to charities.
