From the World Relief Mission a personalised mug, from Cancer Research Foundation a torch including batteries, from Medical Mission International a mock silk scarf, and from Mother Theresa Children’s Fund a child’s blanket. All are accompanied by appeals to help suffering and all are harrowing.
These incentives are manufactured, packaged and dispatched across the world and I ask the question again is this the best that humanity can do to bring relief to those so much in need. I have made a small donation to each which I hope will help to make a difference because with the lack of political will to solve the worlds problems it seems to be all that one can do.
Thank goodness for charities – warts and all!
