I can't answer your question specifically, Notdownlocked, but I'd like to commend you on your global view. Far too many of us in "developed" countries have no idea what poverty looks like. The extent of most people's forays into the third world consists of vacations to places like Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. If more people saw the faces of poverty, we'd probably find better ways of solving the Mexican immigration problem, for example.
For some anet posters, the world stops at the wall of their dorm room or the screen of their computer. And yet many of these same people are the quickest to condemn those from developing countries that are trying to improve their lives and help their families.
Thank you for a thought-provoking post.
