I'm involved with international shipping...which includes containers going to around the world, including Africa.
The corruption of the various governments in Africa belies description. These governments would love more monetary assistance, which would give those leaders more funds to pilfer. There?s also a demand being made by certain groups to rescind all debts owed by these countries.
It's not that they don't have the funds...and granted they may not have huge lines of capital. However, it's in pocket linings that no one can see.
No doubt. I don't have the answer. Don't know if anyone does.
I guess my perspective is these folks are doing more then I right now so I signed up and will send them a few bucks. $100 doesn't mean that much to me because I am lucky. If it saves 50 people from starving for a day or a week I guess it's money well spent. I hope it's not pissed away but I've spent moeny on less worthwhile causes and more meaningless things.
Guess it's just good karma...and the music not's too bad. Too bad Freddie Mercury passed. Nobody beat his performance at Live Aid yet!!!
