Aid For Africa
If you click on the picture above it tells quite a complicated story. Just who are we helping when we are sending major funds off to other places? Is the money going to the people who need it or is it just going off on a mystery trip to rich places and people via the poorest and at their expense? I do not doubt that in many places a good deal of help and support is needed and I do not object to helping. But the evidence is at present that nowhere enough of what is given is effective where it is wanted.
