    Every 5 seconds a child dies from hunger.You've probably heard of this statement before.

    Now, let's do the math, in 14 hours, 10,000 children dies from hunger.Just 14 HOURS !

    Now on the other hand, we have japanese loosing their life beucase of earthquake, I heard it's about 10,000+ of them, but every 14 hours, 10,000 children are dieing from hunger, so why didn't we help them all these time ? Why we only see the japanese crisis now.

    What ya think ?

    I think that everything people hear about these things is rubbish! Charities exist in every type of problem we have on earth. We survived LONG before charity existed. Japan has endured earthquakes and Tsunami's on it's own for thousands of years. People who live in rubbish areas will always starve, as long as they sit around all day doing nothing. When you see those "feed the children" videos and promotions what do you see?

    You see very clean cut looking white people talking about your money while a little African or other dark race crawls around in an empty pot of grule... You can feed the little darkies Gruel for just 2 dollars a day!

    Never do you see anyone working, never do you hear about how all these billions went to create jobs and industry in these places. Or to service the economy of the region.. Why? Because they truly DON'T CARE!


    If you don't know where I'm going with this by now then you never will, and that is the problem...

    We live in a world where nobody has to starve, but because of greed and stupid people who believe whatever anyone tells them, we have "charities" that only put money in rich pockets. Those little gruel eating animals have not advanced 1 frigging step in 30 years of "charity" if that don't make people wonder "where the fuk is all the money going?!!" then they are just bleeding heart imbeciles who just want a crusade to wah wah about.

    It's amazing the level of ignorance I've seen on this board since the Japan quake... Come on people you are INTERNET MARKETERS!! You do for a living the same thing that "charities" do... it's all fkn bullshit to MAKE MONEY! Wake up or grow up! that's what I "think" about this...

    You're absolutely right. There's so many people dieing of so many easily fixable causes in the world every day that it's astronomical. Unfortuantly, we can't fix the world's issues, and we can only focus on what we can help.

    I don't care if you're donating to some kid starving in Africa, the Japanese who have just been devasted by an EQ, or the hobo sitting outside your local Wal-Mart grocery.

    It is never wrong to try and help someone who is in a bad place.


    If you are donating, if you are volunteering--you're doing good for someone else because you are going against the human condition and actually trying to do something that will give you nothing in return.

    I think people who are saying "Why are you helping Japanese people when you didn't help _____" needs to reevaluate why they feel so strongly against helping them. The world isn't fair. Not everyone gets equal treatment, and sometimes one countries' disaster may be prioritized over another countries' suffering. Get over it, because it's no fault of the people who are suffering. Look at the Japanese mothers who have lost their children or the children who have no parents (or anyone to watch after them now) and then say that they don't need help just because they aren't a third world starving country.

    Guys its not about Japan Disaster...or any other nation suffering...its about humanity....if you are able enough to help them....GOD is watching..you will be rewarded.

    Don't talk stupid buddy..they are born there by CHANCE, not by CHOICE!!You don't have any right to sit back on your easy chair in your well developed locality , taking a sip of beer and insulting the fate of those people!!

    u think they are capable of doing anything?? Or have the opportunity??Talk about many African countries who are under sever dictatorship..what would you have done if you were born there??

    Sorry buddy no hard feelings at all...but these lines were pointless!!!

    This is exactly right. If you can help, do it. If you want to criticize other people for helping anyone, then just do everyone a favor and sod off. Just because you're helping someone in Africa does not make you more righteous than someone helping a person who is starving down the street. It's all for the greater good, so don't be critical of another person's good deeds because it only reflects poorly on yourself. I am donating money and time to helping Japan because I have family and friends over there. But, I also organized several local campaigns for Haiti victims as well despite never knowing a Haitian. Now, more then ever, we are a globalized world and it's important to remember that and help the people of other nations when we are able during these catastrophes. Not because it's "politically correct", but because we should care.

    Charities are allowed to use up to 40% of the funds for their administrative spendings. It is always a great pain to try and find how exactly are they spending the remaining 60%. Most of it goes to 'independent experts' developing strategies how to imporve the agriculture there and of course they rarely work if ever.

    There is no concise listing where you could read what village got how many tons of wheat or something... and considering that a ton of wheat costs ~ $350 it really makes you wonder wth are they doing with the billions per year.

    As to Japan, I am simply waiting for the Emperor to make the first move, parting with maybe 1/1000 of his wealth... so far nothing. Really strange.

    People are attracted towards "Japan" news only now a days...the reason?Simple reason...just because they can see wats happening there..the videos,the pics,the news world wide...but may be they have not seen a child or anyone starving to death!! Once they will see..everyone will come here also!May be they wont say "People who live in rubbish areas will always starve".

    Its not just that you gave some part of your money is the only charity!!Neither it is like if you don't help people in BULK..its not a charity!
    A day meal to someone in the street nearby you will also count..and it would count better.
    I agree with you...donating money is not the solution or the only solution!! You have to search for the potential you have of helping out people!!

    Yep, it is great to help but if it is really helping. I've been to Africa with my ex. She showed me how to administer vaccines. Now I know that at least a thousand people won't die of poliomyelitis over there. All it took was a backpack filled with $200 worth of susbtance. The feeling is hard to describe and is certainly better than just giving a thousand dollars to help rebuild some road or factory.

    Pointless to clueless people. Did you really understand the context of my entire post? I don't think so, you need to go back and read it again.

    That is what is said to the public indeed, yet the sad thing is that it's complete BS. It's really quite simple, treatment is profitable yet cure is bad business. Who do you think created these conditions in the first place?

    I'm glad you understand... wish others did too :(

    It's a valid question. I'm sure lots of people think the same.

    "Evolved"? First off, what's evolved? Living in apartment buildings in the tropics, running A/C systems sucking up enough water to supply a million people is evolved? Wearing pants, shirts, coats, etc that were designed for a different climate? Sitting in a wooden building under a baking sun, instead of in the forest under the trees? People think evolution is being more western. It isn't.

    Second, if "those people" had full rights to their own mineral wealth and natural resources it would make a huge difference. Int'l corporations in partnership with the local rulers suck all the money out of the system and leave the people who actually have the rights to those resources to starve.

    And there's that Brit jackass who said that various dark people aren't ready for self-rule. Guss what? They freaking ruled themselves just fine for tens of thousands of years. They didn't wear tall hats with ostrich feathers while the marched around on parade grounds, or drink tea from china cups, but they actually did manage to run their own affairs. The very idea.

    I lived with natives in Alaska for a while. I guess you wouldn't consider them very "evolved". The folks I was with have upgraded to snowmobiles and houses but still have native councils and communal rule to a certain extent. How evolved do you want them to get? They're just fine as they are.

    Imagine what the lives of South Africans could be like if africaaners didn't own all the diamond and gold mines.

    People had perfectly fine political and cultural systems that were intentionally smashed to bits by colonialism. And now that they fight, and the "western" style of governance doesn't work any better than wearing wool sweaters in the jungle, it's because they aren't "evolved". Even in Pakistan, my understanding is that they had a fine secular public education system way back, but the brits saw them as a threat and closed all the schools. the only schools allowed were religious, and now the only widespread education is from madrasas (apologies if I got that wrong).

    And don't get me started on Haiti. Did you know that they were still paying war reparations to FRANCE until the 1970's? To compensate for the slave rebellion that liberated their country. Paying. France. The western world is still punishing Haiti for that rebellion
