Topic: MilCharity: July Donation.


This months donation thread will be a bit different since I've already decided what I want to support..

I really think that this months donation should go to the African food crisis:
Quote:
About 3.6 million people have been affected by the crisis in Niger, among them 800,000 children under five. Nearly 160,000 children are moderately malnourished, while another 32,000 are severely malnourished.
- UNICEF
But several organizations does some great work down there, so you can help to decide what organization we should donate the money to..

- World Food Programme www.wfp.org
- International Red Cross/Crescent www.ifrc.org
- Save the Children www.savethechildren.org
- UNICEF www.unicef.org
- Doctors Without Borders www.doctorswithoutborders.org
- Plan International www.plan-international.org

Feel free to post here or send me a PM if you think that I should add other organizations to the list.

The donation will be sent 15th August.

Thanks.

But you can help me to decide which one of the organizations (working down there) who should get it..

I will go for doctors without borders.
However all those groups seemed deserving enough.

I definently think we should be concentrating on the children in the world. After all, they are our future.

I have heard good things about Doctors Without Borders.

Unfortunately they pulled out of Iraq due to the security threat.

It looks like "Doctors without borders" will get this months donation..
I'll send it tomorrow, unless we get more votes on another org.

64% of the votes went to www.doctorswithoutborders.org ,
so a donation has been sent to help their work in Africa..

A new charity poll will be up and running in a few days.
