Why do we have to keep on supporting UN?

While I was in Cyprus, I met an NGO worker who told me that he had no faith in the UN (United Nations) as it is full of many corrupted officials.

However, though there are many NGOs around the world, it seems to me, a layman, that UN and International Red Cross, have the capacity to reach out widely and deeply. We will not be able to help little, yes very little to what those in needs are suffering, if there is no UN, Red Cross, etc. With them, we can help little, little is better than none at all. Thus, I wish that I could continue support UN, International Red Cross, and many others.

This photo reminds me that I should always support the humanitarian causes that UN, Red Cross, and many others are working for.

The photo depicts a famine-stricken child crawling towards an UN food camp, located a km away. The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it. This picture shocked the whole world. No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who left the place as soon as the photo was taken. Three months later, he committed sucide due to depression. The photo is the Pulitzer prize winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan famine.
