Sorry, but my idea of loving kindness is to not perpetuate the suffering.
Change the government. Change the attitudes.
For example, it is self-destructive for communities to continue to grow
water-intensive crops in areas subject to drought. The horn of Africa should
be growing wheat instead of rice and trade the wheat for food products from
Bangladesh or Indonesia. If the populace of Africa respond by saying "But we
LIKE wheat," should I then be "humanitarian" enough to supply them with all
the wheat they can eat?
And another reason, noted by the UN and many NGOs serving such areas
is that the PTB (either the local dictator, the area warlord, or
whoever) steals the largest percentage of the food for themselves or to
sell to their "constituents". That is when they even let the UN/NGOs
into the country.
We could end starvation tomorrow, but I don't think there are enough
troops in the world available to take over all of the countries that
need to be taken over.
