Do you give money to street beggars?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I live by a large city and it's very sad here... You can easily pass by 10 or more homeless people walking down the street or taking the metro... And you don't often see the same once twice... You'd probably go broke if you always have them money. I give money or food on occasion but I think it would be difficult to give to every begger you come across. A better solution would be for the community to come together and help these people get back on their feet.

 

It's too huge of a problem for one person to handle :/

There are 2 issues here. Yes it is tax deductible, and if you are giving to Islamic charities it can really benefit them. However larger charities that have these systems in place may be spending a disproportionate amount on admin.

I think there is something to be said for getting close to the charities you are helping. I remember making contributions to the LSE as an alumnus and then one day I went there and saw that students were sitting on Herman Miller chairs :shock:

These cost several hundred pounds/dollars each. I stopped the regular payments.

Salam I recommend you to pay your regular charity to https://whoishussain.org

Salam ,I had this same issue about giving money to beggars or homeless people asking for money here in Canada  ,we have these white people specially young white people and some old ones asking for money standing on  highway exits I never give them money because you can tell their drug addicts but still I feel like giving them some  money to help them but then I think if I give them money then would that be like me helping them buying drugs for themselves?like that’ll be wasting of my money on bad purpose ,

I never give money, made that mistake once, turned out that the man was a panhandler and was faking it. Even though it was only two dollars, I felt violated and taken advantage of.

The population also includes people of Arab, Persian, and Indian origin, and small European and Chinese communities.[155] Many also identify as Shirazis. Thousands of Arabs, Persians, and Indians were massacred during the Zanzibar Revolution of 1964.[43] As of 1994, the Asian community numbered 50,000 on the mainland and 4,000 on Zanzibar. An estimated 70,000 Arabs and 10,000 Europeans lived in Tanzania.[156]

Some albinos in Tanzania have been the victims of violence in recent years.[157][158][159][160] Attacks are often to hack off the limbs of albinos in the perverse superstitious belief that possessing the bones of albinos will bring wealth. The country has banned witch doctors to try to prevent the practice, but it has continued and albinos remain targets.
