I think people miss the point entirely. I don't like the adverts either, not just because it is not needed, it is because it is yet another money making scam.
Years ago these charities asked for old clothing, now however they reject old clothing and throw it into the bin because people in the west provide decent clothing that is hardly worn. This is of course a cash cow generating money for these charities.
Lets look at where all this money goes to. http://www.lovemoney.com/news/10302/5-t ... r-money-onhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/pers ... ities.htmlhttp://www.smallcharitydirectory.co.uk/ ... to-charity
Now this is just the tip of the iceberg and is just the charities, Governments and the World Bank are also involved in this, together with the Media in general. Governments and the world Bank loan countries money, ostensibly to alleviate the suffering of the people of the country by creating work in a country so that it can become self sufficient, and of course pay this money back in kind to those lenders, little, if any of it, going to the populace.
Pictures sell papers, and how many photographers selling pictures to western newspapers are actually from that country. Suffering sells big time, with a lot of money paid to foreign photographers, the newspapers are of course all in the west and has people paying money to view images of the suffering people in the country, dig deep people there are a lot of mouths to feed and none of them are in the country you give aid to help.
Just covered here :
Advertising pays big bucks, so advertise your charity or funding body. Print your name onto plastic sheeting to make crappy shelters/tents that blow away in the wind, its all good advertising revenue.
Where is the printing done ?
Pictures sell papers,
Where are the photographers from ?
Newspapers generate money for media companies.
Who owns those companies ?
A lot more can be said, you buy goods from these countries, where the labour is paid for with the bones of the children. 0 hours contracts in this country is something that was dreamt up over there, with the exception that workers have to work a year before they can get a contract, and the employers tear up those contracts at a whim of the slightest infraction, not that they are worth anything, as the workers would probably love to be paid peanuts rather than having to work areas by hand, and are told they are paid by the size of the area cleared for plantations. The ground hard as rock, the vegetation so dense that even if they had a good scythe would take a week to clear an area that they get a days wages for. Not that the days wages are anything even remotely in anyone's imagination anywhere near decent.
The world banks and Governments of course are donating to this type of economy with tax payers money and patting each other on the back, not for the good they are doing, but for how they are conning their own populace. Look what good your taxes are doing. Yes lining your pockets you .........dig deep people there are a lot of mouths to feed and none of them are in the country you give aid to help.
