[A tragedy of the world’s poor has been that] the West spent $2.3 trillion on foreign aid over the last five decades and still had not managed to get twelve-cent medicines to children to prevent half of all malaria deaths.
The West spent $2.3 trillion and still had not managed to get four-dollar bed nets to poor families.
The West spent $2.3 trillion and still had not managed to get three dollars to each new mother to prevent five million child deaths.
...It is heart-breaking that global society has evolved a highly efficient way to get entertainment to rich adults and children, while it can’t get twelve-cent medicing to dying poor children.
