There is only so much we can do. Creating a charity, among other problems, involves the inconvenience of channeling funds towards a purpose that may fall short, without mentioning that it is necessary to control these funds so that they are not lost in the process due to "mysterious" circumstances.

That said, children would be my priority. It is important that they are well educated and well fed if they want to have some minimal possibility in the outside world.

I am currently mentoring a few women to help them become financially and emotionally stable enough to rise out of poverty. My friend and I call it Acts 3.6 Ministry. It's based on the idea that charity should do more than meet an immediate need. It should move people to a level of independence and strength.

I would create a home for homeless people. I would also create another one for educating children from poor societies.

If I were to create a charity, I would either provide needed funds for abuse victims, especially children, or I would devise a charity specifically meant to provide counseling for mentally ill people with very little money or support from their families.
