Sadly, not everyone has the capability of providing for themselves on a regular basis. That is okay since there are a number of people who fall under this category. One of the best virtues of human beings is their compassion which enables charity to be carried out. Being able to share your resources, energy, money or whatever else you have to offer in order to assist individuals who really need it is a way of giving back to the society in a significant manner.
Several religions encourage its congregation to participate in charity activities so as to help their fellow neighbors who are less fortunate. It is the best platform to spread awareness of charity activities and organization available since several people are religious. One does not necessarily have to be religious to give back to the community.
There are people who are kind of heart such that even without any religious affiliations, they still feel the need to do good to individuals who are on the short end of the stick. Charity is a positive act in the society that should be encouraged but with it, a few challenges are experienced. Sadly, there are unprincipled people in positions of power in the charity organization who leech on sympathy.
The donations made by people do not reach the intended destinations and eventually end up in the pockets of corrupt officials. Not only is that a crime but also a very cruel thing to do taking away resources from weak. Also, maybe the person who donated money from their hearts had really worked hard to acquire the funds.
Therefore, people are strongly encouraged to research the organization to find out if they are legit. Given how far fraudsters can go to steal money by setting up sham websites, people are encouraged to follow up on the activities done with the donations made. Building schools and supporting children in their education are some of the intended projects that should be done with the contributions.
