From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
This is a non-fiction, documentary video exploring how the current 'charity industry' not only does not alleviate poverty, but in many cases, makes the problem of poverty much worse. This video consists of several short case studies that demonstrate the point. Although those who contribute time and money to 'charity' are well intentioned, this video will severely shake you faith in our current institutions and make you seriously rethink about giving to the various 'charitable NGOs'.

Corrigan (a man who went to Haiti to adopt, and possibly to open an orphanage, and who, with his wife, volunteered in Haitian orphanages for over a year): "I would conservatively estimate, that about 80% of the 'orphans', of the kids in Haiti, were not 'true orphans', but 'poverty orphans'." ['poverty orphans', meaning: children who have parents, but their parents sent them to an orphanage, for various reasons, among which is in the hope of the kid getting 'adopted' thus, to send a family member to live in a 'rich country' and help support the 'real' family back home.]
