Our country is in trouble! Our economy is falling apart and my people are hungry!
We will send money to help you!
This foreign aid will help you get your country started!
Yay! We have money now! We can feast!
This country is poor and hungry. They think foreign aid will help them get back on their feet.
We spent the money on food and we need more!
This rich country decides to give an extreme amount of money to the poor country. They give it to them all at the same time.
I don't know what to do! We need money to give to our military in the big war we are entering into.
It's like they are just depending on us!
Now that this country got the foreign aid money, they want to spend it on food and feast!
We should have given small amounts of money over a longer amount of time!
Or given aid in the form of physical help like missionaries instead of just money!
This same thing happens over and over again until the country giving aid cant keep giving up their money in such large amounts.
Now the rich country has lost a lot of money in a short amount of time anf they cant give anymore.
Now the country is realizing there were better ways to help the other country. They also gave too much money away at one time causing them to not have enough money to support their military. Now they know that giving away large amounts of money all at once just causes dependency upon other countries.
