It is a bad idea.

Give the money directly.

This book about the problem with aid is 15 years old and the message has hardly penetrated:

Yes stop giving money to them! Every dollar we send to these nations doesn't help the people, it ends up in the pockets of the local warlords. If we send them food, the warlords hoard it for their own use. Every single fucking dollar we send to these countries contributes to the subjugation of the people there while enriching the local dictators.

And it's not just Africa, it's all over the goddamn world. Your tax dollars help fund oppression.

>I rarely ever say this, but this is a crazy enough assertion that I'm asking you to prove it.

I'm not even sure it's something I need to 'prove', because history has done that for me over and over again.

Coincidentally, the title of a great book that is all about the intricacies and corruption in the international charity industry:
