I am positive that the purpose is to raise awareness to the problem more then to count grains. You really think that even in such ultimate beurocratic
heaven as UN somebody is getting paid to count grains of rice in shipments to Africa?
There is a yearly budget for this , and it will be shipped according to preset budget, no more and no less. But awareness will help with getting more
funds for this cut of budget in a long run, for sure.
So in a way people who are exposed to it and play these "cruel"
games do influence how much help will be allocated to this program.
P.S. -excuse my grammar. Literally.
