Hi friends, we like to help the people not only giving the money(if they really need) but also in other ways as free teaching, giving food, clothes, books and other things. And helping the people for getting different trainings, but all things within our possibility. But the main problem is that the poeple are defining the word, HELP only in terms of money and also exploiting our feelings. Now we are afraid of the word, HELPING. but still we are feeling to do some real social work.How can we.........?

I understand the point that you are making. It is very frustrating. There is the same problem here in Nicaragua where I have retired to. There are many people here that want to exploit your feelings. There is a fine balance there between helping them and them becoming a constant in your life where they want you to help them with everything. There is only so much you can do for them.

Thank you for your response. With your response, i understood that the people's feelings are same whether they live in India or Nicaragua or any other country. We will keep your advise in mind while we help the people, who are really in need.
