I AGREE with the writer whose letter appeared recently with regard to foreign aid.

I would go further and say not cut it, stop it altogether. If people want to donate their own money, fine, but no-one should be waiting for necessary operations, prosthetic limbs and aid for vulnerable people. Charity begins at home and we have a large population to care for. Sending money to poor countries will never improve things. It is birth control they need. No-one ever seems to think of setting up a charity for this. Why? Also, the same applies to our own country. People have all the knowledge easily available to control the size of their families. To have two children instead of several makes the difference between having a decent standard of living and a dog’s life.
