The starving kids in africa.....

all the money thats raised by all the charitys, surely the situation in africa and other countrys should be improved by now????
where is all the money going?
it would be a lot better to sterilize everyone from the 3rd world countrys, that way there wouldnt be any starving kids.
people here go on about people shouldnt have kids if they cant have them, well, africans cant afort to feed their kids, they starve to death so they shouldnt have them.
yes i feel sorry for the kids, its not their fault, they shouldnt have been born into that situation

  • I wish this problem was easy to solve, but it's not. I also wonder where does all that money go? I'm sure there are a lot of people out there that help. Every time I see one of those ads I feel so horrible for those children... they didn't ask to be born into that poverty. Some of the women in those countries get raped and that's how they get pregnant, not by choice. I wish there was a way to educate them about birth control.

  • The government (ther's) gets in the way. So does the black market. It is not as easy as it sounds.

    Maybe the poor should just eat thier children. They would no longer be hungry nor would they have hungry mouths to feed.


    I always wonder, if you're going to post something so stupid that you don't even want your name associasted with it, why post it at all?

  • exactly, there was a man called ravi shankar who was a famous musician, he came from a village with no clean water, he paid to have water pipes connected through the whole village and connected to the nearest town (all out of his own money) and to this day the water still hasnt been switched on because the government wont pay for it.
    so no-one can say that those places get any of the money thats is supposed to be raised for them, they dont get any help or there would have been a HUGE difference by now

    They have large numbers of children in hopes that one will survive to keep their line going. Similar to why animals have larger numbers of offspring in a litter. Raises the odds of survival of one.
