How are you guys supporting the poor back home? I’m looking at news and I don’t want to contribute to government based agencies. Let me know what places you’ve contributed to. Looking for some places to donate such that poorest people can get some food. My heart is just breaking looking at the news.

I send money directly to trusted relatives back home who then distribute it to the rightful needy folks personally.

I'd suggest leveraging your relatives/friends as a first resort to get the money in the hands of the needy ones. If not, try donating to NGOs/charities- you can find a good list and reviews on Charity Navigator. I would definitely not recommend donating it to govt funds like PM cares and stuff knowing the high rate of corruption in the country.

Same here. I am sending money to my family who are working on the ground helping distribute food, supplies, etc. to the folks who need the most (via help of local charities, etc.) .

I send it to parents and relatives whom I trust. I would never send money to government agencies because it would be used to further their political agenda vs. going to the poor and needy.b
