Some people think charity organizations should help people in great need, wherever they live. However, others think that they should concentrate on helping people in their own countries. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
Nowadays, there are still many countries which live in poverty and need help in any form available. Therefore, a question arises as to whether it is better to contribute to local charitable organizations or to participate in international aids.
It is reasonable for some people to argue that international assistance should be given to the local community directly because it can save international administration costs and donors would know clearly how the aid is distributed. Otherwise, chances are high that the aid would be appropriated by officials of the government or charitable organizations. Under such circumstances, people in real need of help would have no access to it. Unfortunately, this happens every year in many parts of the world, which is why people are cautious of granting aid to charity organizations.
On the other hand, reasons for donating aid to charity organizations are obvious. Assistance such as food, money, clothing, housing from home or abroad could be firstly allocated efficiently by charity organizations, then sent to the place which need relevant help. For example, One Foundation Charity Fund, sponsored by myriads of celebrities, aims to mobilize the power of the masses to promote and participate in philanthropy in China and worldwide. By comparison, donating directly to the local community would lack such a privilege of distributing resources reasonably.
Personally, I contend that charity organizations could perfect the distribution and supervision of the aid, so people in need of help should benefit of charity.
