Coronavirus (1303) Health misinformation and murders of polio vaccine workers in Afghanistan (3)

21 June, 2021

“No one is safe until (and unless) everyone is safe” is very true and we

all should work towards achieving this goal. I have a feeling that the

co-chair of that organization was trying to get more money for his

organization by exaggerating the situation in Africa. We should know that

many many of the charities working in Africa they work for their own and

not for Africa. Lack of sustainability and the very low investment in

building infrastructure there are very good examples. Africa needs less

corruption, more real independent and more respect to its local cultures

and languages.

Best regards.
