As the developed world knows Africa by the famines shown on TV, justifying vast amount of financial aid that gets poured onto help Africa, the billionaire backed donor agencies have been using a lucrative model to help themselves help Africa.
A recent study into Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation found that the foundation directs a lot of thier aid onto other agencies owned by the same foundation. Essentially they help themselves help the needy. The same model of aid is prevalently used in other aids to different developing nations by paying friendly contractors to do the work.
Many times it has been found that 'helping' nation or corporations benefit more from the aid than the recipients of the aid. Not too long ago when the benevolent Clinton Foundation received billions of dollars to help out the earthquake stricken Haiti, it was found that Haiti only benefited less than 5% of the billions in donations. Furthermore lot of contract work was awarded to Hillary's brother's organization which is reportedly believed to have siphoned off more money/resources from the mineral rich resources of Haiti.
In another instance, many African countries have felt the brunt of aid in medicine as being recipients of medical experiments causing hundreds of thousands dead over time due to malpractices in medicine and vaccinations, causing infertility and death.
With the advent of internet, a lot of African countries are waking up, although a lot more are still under a lot of pressure and past contracts made for their support and silence.
It is interesting to see how few African countries are standing upto global organizations which have yielded much power in the past and continue to do so with their various alliance with the most powerful organizations of the world.
In the past week, three African countries have stood upto World Health Organization as the WHO's agenda is become clear to them. Tanzania and Burundi have actually sent the WHO officials packing out of their countries, while Madagascar is headed towards that same path.
This comes after Madagascar president claimed to have found a cure for Corona which he calls Covid Organics drink, which is reportedly made from Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood) and herbs. Not only is this drink readily been made available to all of Madagascar, even Tanzania and another African countries have placed the order for this medicine, against the advisement of the WHO.
The WHO, which claims not enough tests have been done according to their standards, but as we have seen many conflicting claims by WHO during this corona pandemic, it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what is right and what is wrong.
Meanwhile WHO bought ads in google for keywords "artemisia annua" to redirect anyone doing private research to warn them to stay away from this drug, which is supposed to have cured many Covid patients in Madagascar, which only had one Covid related death so far - yesterday.
Stay informed. Stay safe.
