ONE OF WORLD'S BIGGEST CHARITIES PROTESTS U.S. SUBSIDIES

Care, one of the largest global charities, has announced that it will boycott the U.S. policy of selling tons of heavily subsidized U.S. grown food to African countries. Care wants the US government to send money to buy food locally, rather than unwanted U.S. produced food. The U.S. arm of the charity says America is causing rather than reducing hunger with a decree that US food aid must be sold rather than directly distributed to those facing starvation.
