What if a very poor person has a special talent - how possibly can we HELP him/her become he/she deserves?
If a very poor person has a hidden special talent but we give him/her $1 everyday, do we really HELP this person to become what he/she should be? or are we, based on that kind of $1 charity, turning this person into a common perpetual beggar?
Does our usual charity work as a doctor's pill which only prolongs suffering, but does not cure?
In spite the hired by charities loud speakers who do not really understand the very problem that Creates poverties we often give our donations not to really help but to prolong the misery of millions.
Before we're ready to HELP we need to thoughtfully learn HOW can we help desperate people ---- HELP THEMSELVES.
It is well known throughout history, a telanted artist is often struggling left outside of any kinds of charities. People do not know that he/she exists.
But if we talk about other cases: nature's and economic disaster, great lack of knowledge and working experience, violence, manmade systems and dictatorship crises, the help is only very temporary or just useless.
How shall we learn to create SUSTAINABILITY within one's personal life, within the neighborhood, and hopefully within the society?
RON FINLEY, artists and very unusual gardener , I think he is one of the most impressive examples how one person can help himself and get others involved in the process http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/free-money-might-be-the-best-way-to-end-poverty/2013/12/29/679c8344-5ec8-11e3-95c2-13623eb2b0e1_story.html
