International assistance through donating to charity is a great cause; however it is a difficult task. Foundations depend on the economy, the generosity of people and corporate businesses getting involved to bring in the income to sustain the less fortunate. It is amazing because these businesses and communities all over the world are putting their extra income in to help people with little or no money at all. You have to be wary of donating to an international charity. They are so far away from you; a lot of research is required before you send money to them. You are not able to just get into the car, have a look at what it looks like, and see if the money is being spent well. You need to confirm that it is a valid charity, and it is not a scam. Fraud is very big and everyday more hoaxes are being put into place to make a quick buck.
There is a great need for international charities as they are the only organisations that dedicate their lives to serving people in need. They run multiple programs; the majority concentrates on peoples’ health like malaria, HIV/AIDS and childbirth deaths. These are created to aid in medicine and medical facilities; this ensures that they will be treated for their diseases. This is a great source of help for people who are unable to afford them.
Reducing poverty is another form of charity; it aims to raise the standard of living for individuals and their income. They provide education and teach them skills to improve their job opportunities. They have homes, food and water. Being schooled and taught so that they can have a chance at working and bringing in their own money. These programs have been put in place all over the world to try and close the gap between the rich and poor people.
The youth have a much better chance as they are young and easier to teach, they have an equal opportunity to get into a college and get work. They have bursaries for children that work hard and have not got the funds to afford it; alternatively the foundation will rely on donations to put the child through. Education is the future that will empower each and every child, as long as they have the funds to give them the opportunity at raising their standards. This is where the public comes in and where their money goes. It is a very good cause, knowing that you helped pay for a child’s education, it is one of the best gifts you could ever give in this lifetime.
