Yes, that's an interesting article, Slobodan. Its sad that aid to developing nations is often not managed sensibly, does not always reach or help those in most need, and is often syphoned off by corrupt officials for their own purposes.
The bottom line as I see it is, whatever we do, whether starting a business, running a business, getting the plumbing in our house repaired, or helping poor people in undeveloped nations to raise their living standards, it should be done competently and effectively to achieved the desired outcomes. If it's not, the money, goods, services, and people's time are wasted.
However, feeling good from the mere act of giving is a reality. It is more blessed to give than to receive, is it not?
In Thailand there's a daily ritual of Buddhist monks walking the streets with alms bowl in hand, or under robe. They are not begging. They are providing the opportunity to the members of the community to feel good about giving.
To take the photo attached, I had to get up really early in the morning. Thank you barking dogs for waking me early.
