We hear all the time on television, radio and newspapers ect. the bad things that happen in third world countries and how we should try and stop world hunger (such as mass starvation in Ethiopia for example), and that we should donate money to help those less fortunate, but is that effective? Charities in the world are essentially trying to do too much to no avail. It's like pissing on a forest fire, you get loads of people pissing on different spots in the fire and it won't go out, but get a load of people to piss on one spot, sure enough it will go out. What I'm saying is, should charities focus on one country such as Ethiopia for example for about 10 years so that they become a better country and more self sufficient instead of helping dozens of others at the same time? These stupid charities have been going on for over 50 years to no success, they have to change their approach.
