Why are people charitable to those abroad when there are so many issues here at home?

    I agree with your points however, there are people in the US without running water, electricity, food, homes, medical attention, etc. They are simply overlooked whether they are in Appalachia or in urban or rural areas.

    Thanks for answering, I was referring to the US but you have a valid point that is relevant to each country. I think people should be charitable abroad but preferably after serious issues have been addressed at home to strengthen from within.

    There are so many who ignore or are unaware that there are Americans in the US living as if they were in a 3rd world country with no home, food or medical care. A frightening number are children as well as WORKING adults and veterans.
