Many people would agree that other people's problems will not affect them.
But now increase the scale, and instead of people, think about countries.
The world is so connected that a catastrophic event in one place could affect the entire chain.
The issues of the country is really a collective story of the issues of their people.
Thus, we should be empathic and try to help not only ourselves but also others.
When we are okay and they are okay, we all will live in a better place.
