Personally I don't always agree with some Charities and the way they help the needy people. My view is that hands on help like showing war torn regions how to rebuild their lives, replant their seeds for crops or keep a good hygiene regime is the best method and it gives these long term sufferers their pride back. Thankfully most Charities do that.

I've been to quite a few Markets in Africa where food parcels that were intended to feed truly starving and needy people were being openly sold to the first buyer. This is just one example of corruption or maybe bad organisation.

Most people haven't got the time or will to go out to these out-of-the-way places and help out in person so giving towards the people that do, is a very worthy contribution. Those Charity workers do a bloody hard and dangerous job out there. So if you're feeling generous click a Charity that takes your fancy.
