Just saw an ad on teevee from a charity soliciting aid for poor people in Israel?

$25/month to send “care” packages to poor Jews in Israel. WTF? I thought Israel was a developed nation and could take care of its own poor.

4. Really? Are there international charities to help the people of France? Of the U.K.?

Not speaking of disaster relief, speaking of day-to-day relief because the country can not afford it?

3. it is probably a scam

some kind of "fellowship of Christians and jews." how much of that money do you think makes it into care packages?

there is another one for holocaust survivors in Ukraine.

if people are actually being fed with this stuff I guess I approve, but some of these Christian groups are very fraudulent.

7. Sure, although I am in no way endorsing such an organisation

And therefore this is NOT intended as Commercial Spam.

It’s a charity called Bless Israel.

9. Similar to the first although cheaper

It’s worth noting that the per capital gdp in Israel is higher than that in France.

13. Uhm, what are you talking about???

All of those agencies deliver aid to poor countries, not to developed countries(or as disaster relief). My comment is why are there international charities delivering day-to-day aid to a developed country?

ETA: I see you have changed your post entirely. Yes, there are British charities that deliver aid in Britain, just as there are US charities that deliver aid in the US. Again, not what we’re discussing.

14. ''Again, not what were discussing''...bullshit, your using the poor in israel to trash israel over

it while ignoring that the UK also has poor, as does every nation on this planet. If you trash one over that reality, you're trashing them all..............cause no matter what kind of SJW stuff you do, there will always be poor people in every society...just as there will also be the rich.

15. No, what I am saying is that developed countries take care of their own poor

through government services and local charities. In the cited case, while Israel has a per capital GDP higher than either the UK or France, charities in other countries are soliciting international donations to support that country’s poor. That is very odd. When was the last time you were asked to support, for example, the Great Ormand Street Hospital?

18. And we know any of the ''donations'' collected will actually make it to the ''poor'' in israel, how?

"charities in other countries are soliciting international donations to support that country’s poor"

So many of the international "charities" are so bloated with overhead, transportation costs, etc., that not much if any of the donations make it to the ones in need. Before giving anything to any new charity I check them out using sites like charitynavigator.org..............
