a lot of people involved in charity work, should never have been involved. i know a case of a small charity that was rather questionable for
years. it was a children's home started up by a rich North American. someone who got rich by buying up companies, breaking them then selling
them off piecemeal sound like someone who should be involved in charity work? there were many issues over the years the way he ran it,
including such things as stacking the board of directors with his wife's relatives, and hiring relatives in most positions. telling (non
family) staff to do things, then when they did FIRING them for doing it, and lieing about the fact they were following his direct orders
(people really should have gotten orders in writing, but they sounded reasonable). refusing to pay 13th month pay,(a legal requirement here for all
workers). he even moved kids illegally from one part the the country to another after taking over another children's home, and in the end
shutting it down (sounds a little like how he made his fortune doesn't it? funny thing is he screwed up, he couldn't sell that property due to laws
here). all the while he was living like a king, having the charity pay for things like building a big house for him, buying a car, plus high
wages for both him and his wife.
now this was an organization that was funded mostly through church donations. well the problems in the US hit his donations rather hard. at the same
time he apparently lost everything in the stock market, and ended up fileing for personal bankruptcy in the US. so here he was, broke, and donations
were not enough, then something interesting supposedly happened. he went to the states to drum up support, when he returned he supposedly found out
the board (remember most of the board were his wife's relatives), had decided to shut down the home. now there are interesting laws about
charities here. anything like property that has been donated such as the property he donated to the charity reverts back to the donater
in cases like a charity shutting down (even if say the charity needs to relocate they can't sell the property it goes back to those that donated it).
so he of course will gain ownership of it.
in his e-mail to supporters telling them how sad it was that this happened, he went on to inform them all was not lost that he will be now working
with a couple of big name charities, habitat for humanity is one, the other escapes me right now in the area (charities i will definitely not
support now). charities that collect big money in North America, and are financially secure. anyone else smell a RAT? seems like his own
charity couldn't afford him any longer so he shut it down, to join up with organisations he can make money off of. sadly this type of scum tend to
become part of charities for their benefit. yes a lot of charities especially big ones are just schemes for people to make money from,
he fact they might actually help people is just a pleasant side effect for them. the worst thing is there ARE good charities out there where money you
give DOES go to help people. one i know has an interesting set up that prevents the gross misuse of money that tends to happen, more should be set up
like it. they have TWO separate donation areas. you can donate to the organization it's self which covers things like wages and other things. the
other you donate for a disaster, and ALL that money actually goes to help people who are suffering.
