Millions of people are dying of starvation, HIV-AIDS and by Wars, Terrorist Acts or Civil Unrest around the World. What are we doing about it? What is humanity doing to solve these problems? Is this the best humans can do; is this really an acceptable response.
Indeed, I have witnessed the noble efforts of the NGOs and all the World Leaders and those high-profile entertainers. I would like to make a point. The point is all this BS, Movie Star Publicity, Bono Concerts and Non-profits and all this commotion and sending money in isn't working. No one is doing anything to fix the real problems, only the symptoms. This is typical of Politically Correct methodology that permeates the world.
There are too many humans reproducing too fast for a sustainable civilization and there is too much corruption between the aid and the recipients. In the case of the Nairobi Slums it appears that the Nairobi City Council and Kenya Government do not care, perhaps they may, but we can only go by the actions not the political speeches or rhetoric.
The problems there could potentially be solved for less than 150 million dollars, which is nothing considering 800,000 people live in one slum, named Kibera alone. Over 1.6 million slum inhabitants total live in and around Nairobi, Kenya. Worse the US funds 1.6 Billion in Aid to Kenya and so far lots of promises and not much else.
With the proper plan completed to fix this problem it makes a statement to the WORLD that we can actually solve this problem for real. So, either they need to do it or we need to send a message to all these committees, publicity hounds and NGOs. They have not solved the problem; they have; “FAILED!"
Why can't we divert AID to Kenya; after all what is the aid for; paying-off politicians? Great, but “Free-Money" comes with stipulations. Look either you care about “Humans Dying" or you do not. Sending in AID that never gets there and knowing it won't is a LIE. It proves you do not care. We need to stop the band-aids and fix the problems.
