So much ignorance in these responses. We do not send money to Sudan. The money is used to help finance peacekeeping, logistics, and food aid through the UN, World Food Programne, and similar organizations who have the systems in place to make delivery of aid effective. Suggestions to send MREs are idiotic : the pentagon pays about $7/meal, and that doesn't include the vast costs of logistics and shipping. The World Food Programme can deliver a meal for about $0.31/ration and buy it from neighboring states. The UN and African nations ARE already contributing funds, food, expertise, and people. But the crisis is growing, which is why countries are being asked to do more. Hundreds of thousands of CHILDREN are in dire jeopardy of starving to death. Please do a little research.
