    1. Yes, always! We should vet the credibility of these benefactors. Someone like Gates is a tech giant, what credibility does he have on the health sector? But nobody wants to question Mr.Moneybags.


  1. The problem with suspicion, is that the poor always want those with more to “give back”. I do not know anyone in the camps on the West Bank, or in the slums in Buenos Aires whose first thought is to help a sick child in Tijuana or build a water purification plant in the southern Sudan. More often the wealthy comment on what needs to be done, but are not out there trying to help. Am I wrong?

    1. You’re not entirely wrong. The bit that irks me is the assumption that it is the poor who initiates ‘the help me’ loop. Look, here, these villagers that Gates claims to help know nothing about these vaccines nor the real intentions of their benefactor.


      1. That is a good point. Sleeping on it, I started thinking, “why” he, himself, would go to these village? It’s not like the WHO teams that went somewhere when Ebola overwhelmed a country’s ability to treat their people. Thought provoking.
