Hi! In English you can replace "poor people" with "the poor" but is it possible also in Swedish? If it's fine, do I have to say "de fattiga" with an article or is "fattiga" without an article enough?

Here is an example sentence:
Jag anser att man varken behöver donera hundratals euro till flyktingar eller ge hela sin egendom till de fattiga för att hjälpa andra människor om man inte vill.

    Generally you can use both, but in this context I would prefer fattiga (without the article) because it's in harmony with flyktingar.
