Humanitarian advocate Mari Malek: Think twice before you donate to big NGO’s

-

WORLD. The humanitarian advocate Mari Malek from South Sudan says that people should think twice before they give money to big humanitarian organizations. Donations to the big NGOs have a tendency to end up in the wrong places. There are far better alternatives.

Video interview by Aga Wilsson | Text by Torbjorn Sassersson

Mari Malek was brought up in South Sudan. Her mother decided that Mari deserved a better life than war and being married by force at a young age. They escaped to Egypt. Mari, her mother, and her sisters later ended up in the US. Malek worked her way up to the point where she became a respected humanitarian advocate in New York with contacts within the UN, a supermodel, and an actor.

Mari Malek says that people should think twice before they give money to big humanitarian organizations. It’s better to donate to smaller organizations that can assure resources reach all the way to the people that really need help.

Malek says billions of dollars every year are given to huge NGOs working in Africa yet famine, wars and poverty continue that create suffering and inequality.

There are far better alternatives, often small grassroots movements and small organizations are much more effective. Malek herself founded Stand for Education that provides access to education for children living in conflict, empowers women, and supports refugees.

Malek says more people die from starvation rather than Covid-19. At the same time, Africa is extremely efficient in food production. It’s a paradox.

Absolutely! 

F William Engdahl’s enormously clarifying book “Geheimakte NGOs: Wie die Tarnorganisationen der CIA Revolutionen, Umstürze und Kriege anzetteln” clearly shows that “charities such as Médecins Sans Frontières, the Red Cross and a lot of other NGOs support terrorism, human trafficking and other deeply criminal activities.

Self-claimed philanthropists as Bill Gates, George Soros, David Rockefeller are also “practicing charity”.

Don’t give a penny!

Översatt till svenska, eftersom budskapet är väldigt viktigt:

Absolut!

F William Engdahls enormt klarläggande bok “Geheimakte NGOs: Wie die Tarnorganisationen der CIA Revolutionen, Umstürze und Kriege anzetteln” visar med all tydlighet att “välgörenhetsorganisationer som Läkare utan gränser, Röda korset – och en MÄNGD andra NGO:s stöder terrorism, människosmuggling och diverse andra djupt kriminella aktiviteter.

Det är intressant att också Bill Gates, George Soros, David Rockefeller etc. säger sig utöva välgörenhet och kallar sig filantroper.

Ge inte ett enda öre!
