I have been trying to find the accounts for a charity but would have to pay for a copy. I have been thinking that all charities should make their accounts visible, perhaps on their website? I can understand the ceo of a large charity being well paid as it is a responsible job but would like to know how the rest of the money is spent.
I have become rather cynical about how much money gets to where it is needed. For instance we are still sending money to India. I have been there about ten times and read their papers which say they don't want or need our money. There is so much corruption anyway that the money does not filter down to the poor.
After the sunami (I can't remember how to spell it) huge amounts of money were donated but much of it was used badly. For instance replacement boats were provided to the fishermen in Sri Lanka but they were the wrong type.
I volunteer in a charity shop in aid of a local Hospice. It is a good cause but I do have reservations, for instance, about some luxuries in the offices.
