I share you view, I long ago stopped contribution money (and advocate others to do likewise) to any humanitarian or good will organization or
individual. The state has the function and obligation to care for society this is what taxes are for, circumvention the state in those functions
serves only to provide excuse of its failings and to enable shady activities.
I also disdain charity, charity creates a relation of dependence. If done by a private organization or individual it is done in function of that that
person's or organization's interests not particularly for the good of the receiver and often in ways that it is not scrutinized by the rest of
society, in a fair our with any consistency.
I do however donate time and work to communal causes and free projects.
