The Machine Gun Preacher

Hello all, and welcome back to The Best Charity. The last several months have been spent abroad, meeting with those in need first hand, and assessing the living conditions across Europe for those in poorer regions. We came across a film starring Gerard Butler which is not to be missed- The Machine Gun Preacher! This film tells the story of a reformed man, who goes on to do his part to change the world- we can all learn from this as a shining example of the difference one person can make. Together, we can change the world! The Best Charity recommends this film to all who have undertaken charity work, are planning to do so, or are looking to be inspired to make a difference. The Machine Gun Preacher, we have recently learnt, was the inspiration behind the formulation of The Best Charity website. As you can imagine, our staff were thrilled when we found out the owner was just as inspired as us- and made this incredible charity website as a result. Let us know what you think of the film, it is highly recommended!

The Best Charity: Is the world doing enough?

The Best Charity has one purpose in mind when it delivers information- to encourage the world to work together.

At The Best Charity, we aim to provide as much information as possible to help guide your charitable decisions. In an ideal world, we would like for each of us to donate to every region and country that is in need, but we understand that different people have different motivations. Perhaps one of the most important reasons for The Best Charity’s existence, is the provision of ample information relating to areas in the world which are far less marketed. From a corporate perspective, it appears that most charities with the financial power to do so, choose to exercise their powers and channel their funds into advertisements for Africa. While commendable, and extremely important, the masses often live in ignorance of other nations and their problems.

If you surf around our site, you will see that we have put hundreds of hours, close to thousands into research, analysis, partnerships, sourcing and establishment of foreign correspondents to ensure that The Best Charity is your first port of call. We provide news, highlights, issues and a different perspective and approach to the issues our world still has to figure out. We will continue to update and add new regions and countries as required, including a comprehensive breakdown of the South Pacific- we hope that you enjoy what you find and read, as we are committed to educating the world about all matters charity.

Together, we really can change the world. At times, it can seem like the world is not doing enough to eradicate poverty and alleviate the consequences that follow it. We want to encourage everybody around the world to take action, to go without that morning coffee, or that weekly dinner, and pledge to make a difference to somebody’s life on the other side of the world.

 

Eastern European issues

Eastern Europe is a part of the world which all too often goes forgotten. A stark contrast from the tourist Mecca of Western Europe, the east faces many problems just waiting to be solved. Poverty and corruption are rife, and the economy in many of these countries is only getting worse.

One of the worst crimes which seems to be infamous in Eastern Europe, is human trafficking. Human trafficking involves the abduction, false imprisonment and misrepresented focus of peoples for financial gain- from slavery to sex trafficking, thousands disappear every year never to be heard from again. Many women are forced into illegal prostitution rings throughout Europe and the rest of the world, and are often drugged, beaten and raped by ‘clients’ who pay criminals for access to the victims. The Best Charity has several correspondents within Eastern Europe who are able to shed light on a forgotten crime by the masses. We make regular visits to Eastern Europe as a team, in order to help lend support, and learn new information that we can then spread to the world.

The Best Charity presents: Volunteering in Africa

Africa is a diverse continent, filled with rich culture and fascinating wonders. For the typical tourist, it is known as a land of smiles, safari’s and unique animals, but the story for most Africans is far less glamorous.

Africa faces a crisis of high unemployment rates, high crime, an AIDS/HIV epidemic and extreme poverty. In addition, armed militant groups and rebels are known to massacre villages at random, and force children to become child soldiers or sex slaves- it is a hard life in parts of Africa, where death and misfortune are a sad everyday occurrence. More can be done to help those affected, as there are many charities, both large and small, who endeavour to make a difference; work is available at medical centres, orphanages, schools and community centres, where volunteers have the opportunity to understand first hand, just how different life can be. More importantly, volunteers have the opportunity to make a child smile, teach valuable skills in both business and trade, and assist those less fortunate than ourselves towards a better life.

The Best Charity presents: Volunteering in South East Asia

South East Asia is a region of fantastical polarity. A major tourism hub for the young and old a like, it has cemented itself as a legendary trail for the backpacker in all of us, but beyond the good times and hidden hot spots, is a very real world issue. Poverty, human trafficking, sex trafficking and child labour are just some of the daily issues locals face as they go about their lives. We can make a difference- on a Western wage or salary, foregoing a few nights out on the town can mean a different way of living for those in S.E.A. Just USD $100 can change lives, and impact on the people of Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, Laos and beyond, in ways you may not even realise.
