Originally posted by vinay86The strength of Masonry is local. There is no world-wide hierarchy controlling it all. If you think the Masons in India aren't doing anything for the people of India, you'd need to appeal to them, because there's only so much guys from New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas, Florida, etc (ie, some of the Masons on ATS) can do to help.
These are all charities from U.K, England, Britain, Scotland from where the freemasonry started and it could be that they made them for earning trust of the people. What about the world do they have any charity hospitals, Hermitages, schools, shelters for poor in any of the least developed countries like Africa, India, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh etc. And why they want to just present in every country in the world, are there are not much character building institutions in them.
