Do we have a moral imperative to help others?

If one includes others, please define "others". For example, are "others" family, friends, community, city, state, country, or world? Are others the most needy and/or the least powerful such as children or women in a poverty stricken country? When answering, keep in mind our innate ability as humans to self deceive, and answer based on one's current use of time, money, and emotional surplus, if any, rather than words absent of corresponding action.

    One should be responsible for all of one's environment which is basically everything.
