Charities have played a vital role in facilitating developing countries achieve their development goals. These countries, especially in Asia, face human crisis and this is where charities come in to provide essential needs such as food, medical supplies, shelter, and clothing to the affected communities. Some of these charity organizations face stiff misconception from governments and minority groups claiming that the organizations meddle their internal affairs. But despite these challenges, these organizations do not give up and sometimes operate in very harsh conditions because they understand that humanitarian needs are more important than any other personal views.
These organizations sometimes run out of funds to operate where the conditions escalate, and they require to be funded by good wishers to help the needy as they depend mainly on charity funds. This is where individuals who can come out to support the efforts of these organizations by funding them. One man who has made such an effort is George Soros who recently announced a huge funds transfer to the Open Source Foundations of $18 billion which operates in Asia. George Soros said this was part of his efforts to facilitate such organizations as he would later send 2$2 billion later on as part of his efforts to promote such organizations in the future.
The foundation revealed that it uses the funds in fighting for justice among the depressed communities, ensuring that criminals and drug lords are brought to justice and also provide essential needs such as access to clean water and a healthy living environment to eliminate the risk of disease eruption among the fighting communities. The foundation says it receives many cases of injustices like where certain paper mills and companies mining gold have been polluting water sources in Indonesia. Such cases are sensitive and local communities cannot be able to fight for themselves. This is where Open Source Foundations comes in enforcing the involved governments to publish reports indicating when the water was polluted and when can the people be able to use the water as they have the right to know and also challenge such actions.
Open Source Foundations revealed that they also use the funds to facilitate local partners who lack funds to continue their humanitarian efforts like the Nepali lawyers who were helping in Maina case. They have helped the Nepali nongovernmental organizations deal with the scale of the sexual assault that occurred during the 2015 conflict that led to mass destruction. The organization has been involved in revealing the assaults which were undermined enforcing the government to bring criminals to justice and compensate the victims who suffer up to date.
Open Source Foundations has facilitated the Alliance for Social Dialogue who have been at the forefront in ensuring that the human rights and democracy are observed to heal the people from the injustices that occurred during the crisis. They have also supported grassroots groups in Mongolia who are fighting for children with disabilities to remain in the education system where they were to be excluded from receiving a proper education like other children which sparked a lot of anger in many activists who fought this decision with all the powers they had. Truly, the charity from George Soros will contribute a lot in improving the livelihoods of many people in the Asian countries for the next several years and more
