Reap what you sow

Oxfam are now worried about the possible implications of diverting scarce resources from one problem to another.

Maybe they should have thought a little harder about their own actions when they started to spend their limited budget on political lobbying:


The reason I won't give to Oxfam. The road to hell is paved with good intentions and this mob are finding they might end up doing more harm than good.

Political purposes do not qualify for charity relief from tax and may damage the cause more than they realize.
Worse are the governments that set up NGOs posing as aid agencies that are a cover for political action, rather than pressure. Some even gather intelligence and convert agents.
I agree that it is difficult to know to whom to donate. Some of the medical agencies seem best?
One of the most politicized is the Red Cross. In USA it messed up N'Orleans relief. Israeli DF love to shoot up Red Crescent ambulances. The Knights of Malta are a freemasonry set up.
Things are often other than they seem!
Thanks for the post.
