Some people believe that charity organizations should give aid to those in greatest need, wherever they live. Other people believe that charity organizations should concentrate on the people in their own country. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Globalisation has become and irreversible trend, which can be shown in different aspects, including international aid. while some people claim charity organisation should focus on residents in their own countries, I would argue their responsibility should go beyond that.
Obviously, the whole world is developing into an international community and a variety of resources are increasingly shared by global citizens as fuel energy, education and medical services. If charities could lend a help to those foreigners who are in desperate help, they would give their support in return once in need and this would go beyond the individual level or organisational level to the national level, which means recipient countries may also help donor countries in corresponding perspectives.
Another point is that delivering international aid can also help to establish a good reputation globally, especially when some natural disasters happen, which also displays the principle of humanitarianism. Some disasters are inevitable and it is still quite common to see the reports in respect to was and other calamities. Although we can hardly prevent these tragedies, there is something we can do to relieve the situation and charities should take the responsibility.
On the other hand, those who maintain aid from charity organisations should be restricted to their own people deem that resources are limited and helping people overseas may harm the interest of their own country, For instance, developing countries are still concerned about their own development in the aspects of finance or even food and clothing. Without the help from charities, those living in poor areas would face starving and poverty.
From my perspective of view, international aid should be encouraged and charity organisations should take the responsibility of helping those who are in need regardless of their nationalities. Nevertheless, if it conflicts with their own interests to a great extent, they should ensure the well-being of their own people first.
