Donations to poor Africa countries

Every day you hear wealthy philanthropists, celebrities, and all these other people donating millions of dollars to so called African countries to alleviate the poverty situation here.

However, what these people do not know is that, they are not helping Africans, they are enriching VERY few individuals in Africa.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated millions of dollars to several charity organisations in Africa. George Clooney donated $5.5million to a charity organisation recently. Warren Buffet has donated millions of dollars to various charity organisations in Africa, various musicians and actors have come together to donate money to help Africans in the past, and the most recent event was the American 'Idol gives back' event, Gordon Brown, Snoop Dog, Ellen Degeneres and a host of other people were there to raise funds for these poor children.

I got this from Idols give back website:
"IDOL GIVES BACK, the historic Emmy Award-winning television event and music celebration airing Wednesday, April 9 (7:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, will raise awareness and funds to benefit six charities. including: the Children's Defense Fund, The Global Fund, Make It Right, Malaria No More, Save The Children, U.S. Programs and the Children's Health Fund.
This year's event, beginning at a special 7:30 PM start time, will be bigger and more ambitious than ever. Robin Williams, Celine Dion, Forest Whitaker, Billy Crystal, Dane Cook, Kiefer Sutherland, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Jennifer Connolly, Elliott Yamin, Fantasia and Amy Adams join previously announced international talent and sports figures Bono, Brad P
During the show, viewers will be able to make donations via toll-free lines and the Internet. Idol Gives Back Foundation charitable causes are also generously supported by corporate partner"

They say they have been able to save more than a million children. News flash..... those millions of children are still suffering, their financial and health situations have not improved. These donations are given to these organisations but i don't think it gets to these families/children.
I have been to a lot of African countries and i have seen people who live in slums. The sight is pathetic and it baffles me when i see people make these donations on TV and everywhere.It always makes me wonder where the donations are transferred to.

Go to Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Rwanda, and other war-torn parts of Africa. It's really pathetic.

There are various ways by which these people can give money to these suffering people.
*They can go to the streets, (after they have given money to obtain permission from some government officials of course) gather these children up and give these monies individually to their families.
*Build homes or schools for these people, like Oprah did.
*Build well equipped hospitals in towns or villages and make available, free medical treatment for the impoverished
*Provide basic amenities for the community, etc.
This way, whatever it is donated, money, relief materials, etc, will get to the people who REALLY need them.

Attn,Sir/Madam

My name is Frances James from Portugal. I have been diagnosed With Esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right Now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical Experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never Really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am Very rich, I was never generous,
I was always hostile to people and Only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared For. But now I regret all this as I now know that there Is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the Money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.
Now that God has called me, I have $3MUSD for donation to the need,feel free to contact me with my email given below.

Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want to make a last donation to a God`s-Fearing person to give to the needy. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul, so I have decided to give alms to charity Organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.

God Bless You.


Thanks.
Frances James
