WFP is the UN agency criticized ... .when showing the wives of the world's leading politicians how they worked was flown poor children from Ghana to Rome to be fed with porridge. It was on 10 July as Sarah Brown, Margarita Barroso and several other wives of top politicians of the G8 countries were invited to the WFP, World Food Program, based in Rome.
WFP wanted to show the ladies what great work the organization does in the world. Therefore, was flown to a group of poor schoolchildren from Ghana to Rome especially for the event. The children would tell me how WFP is helping them. In the tents next to the swimming pool staff were presidential wives the opportunity to invite the children in the soy maize porridge WFP usually give starving. At the same time called on the majority of the agency's 1 200 employees to stay home that day.
"Due to the security precautions mandated by the Italian government and the visiting delegations, only those employees involved in the event or deemed necessary for critical operations by their managers will be permitted on the main building premises during the morning of July 10"

anonymous from fear of retaliation, asked if Josette Sheeran would similarly "parade around Food Stamp recipient in the United States," and went on to suggest that if the G-8 spouses wanted to see "needy Africans" while in Italy, they could check out the camps on Lampedusa...
UNITED NATIONS, July 7 -- During the upcoming G-8 meeting in Italy, the UN World Food Program is flying school children from Ghana to Rome for a "simulated food distribution" display for the spouses of G-8 representatives. WFP has ordered staff not involved in the display to not come to work that day. They will, however, received "special leave with full pay."
Am out early to head back to Rome to the Headquarters of the World Food Programme for a G8 spouses event on Women Saving Lives. We are met by the Executive Director Josette Sheeran who presents each of us with a red plastic feeding cup – the cup filled with food on their emergency feeding programmes at the cost of just over ₤1 a week. Many spouses are here: from Canada, EU, Japan, India, and South Africa – and today we are joined by those from Nigeria and South Korea. A group of school children from Ghana sing and talk about their experience of WFP feeding programmes, and we hear more about the links to local agriculture and building up community sustainability.

It might of cost the same amount to fly the wives there. After flight, and security, and personal waitstaff *eye roll* to go to Ghana, it might of ended up costing the same.
Once at a church function to raise money for starving Africans, we ate a meal of what they would eat. Which was a little plastic cup only half filled with cooked rice. It would be what they would eat in a day.
If these women were really intersted in understanding poverty, they would go and live in these countries for a few days as the locals do.
The children did not look like the typical starving children, I am sorry but they did not. This is utter propaganda and nothing else. 500,000 could have made food for years with the proper equiptment brought in and irrigation supplied.

Its not just the wives stupidity.
This really is the UN. That organisation is corrupt, and useful as the league of Nations was against Hitler in 1939

How many churches are in US and UK? How many have been collecting at least 10% tithes from all members per year? And for how many years? Where has that money gone?
Stock portfolios, hefty salaries, corporate ownership of hospitals, bigpharma, etc., private jets, huge estates, etc. etc. And yet they allowed their congregations to assume they were feeding the poor and upgrading their conditions. People have given and given because they had good hearts and love for fellow man. The religions have abused what was contributed and have perpetuated false pretenses for monies collected.
The corruption is too deep to ever be solved by man. And I think it is already too late to change it because the greed and corruption has also killed this planet and too many other life forms.
