HIDDEN AGENDA

Compassion upholding helpfulness toward better lives… Such is the seed embedded along plots of noble charitable institutions to bloom along their vision-mission-goals as well as to blossom like flowers beautifying communities then producing laudable fruits effectively becoming assets and blessings, too. Such is the ideal and the supposed-to-be anchor bracing up foundations funded by philanthropists and caring people in their love-geared motive. God be thanked for them May they be blessed to do and increase more--- Yet in the cloak of kindness adorned with heavenly promises varied helping organizations sprout offering poverty-alleviation schemes toward financial freedom along gentle persuasion of "good faith" exercise--- Yes, in the name of wholehearted contributions they pursue outreach programs grant scholarships and medical assistance but with vested interests verily undeniable--- Can we forbid the proliferation of life-building ventures with hidden agenda lurking in the guise of charity??? May the Lord help* us be a real help to others!
