Money entered by philanthropes dissolve in the common flow that leads to mistrust so as there is no transparency at all. In most cases participants of charity projects do not know and cannot know how their money is spent.
There are significant delays, which mean a long period between the official provision of aid and its actual receipt. In some cases, the delay may last several years.
There are lot of plotters including private actors who aggregate money on their personal card for helping a kid suffering from cancer as well as some organizations that ask to help people, animals, the environment, but use collected money for non-philanthropic needs.
