      What a load of horse s**t. We should just cut all aid let the bastards fend for themselves. I know for a fact that donated items wind up being sold in the market place, very little food medicine and clothing ever make it to those whom it was intended.

      Hey, there’s money involved. Does anyone believe a bank will choose doing the right thing over making money?

      Shocker. Multibillion-dollar, multinational corporations placing the bottom line above social responsibility. It’s really not a surprise given that the social, economic, and legal frameworks that undergird these companies place no real value on social justice, altruism, or even basic notions of fairness and equity: it’s all about delivering a gain to the shareholders.

      @Dumdum: In 2005 I was volunteering for the British Heart Foundation [I had Myocarditis early that year and nearly died of it] we sent three shipping containers to Ghana full of clothes, food and whathaveya.

      The ship arrived, a friend of my dads was captain of the cargo ship and he watched it as it arrived, first of all the leader of the government took what he wanted and then his family. Secondly the government and their families took what they wanted.

      Having took nearly half of the three containers, they then set fire to the rest, ensuring nobody else could have anything.

      Sad, but not isolated, however it is never reported as it goes against the white guilt we are supposed to have as an anchor.
