Ask before helping

Your empathy & compassion shouldn’t misguide your desire to help others.

I work for a humanitarian organization that does great work on behalf of the worlds poor and vulnerable. What have I learned from that experience? I’ve learned that sometimes our best efforts can do more harm than good. Always, always ask people what they need rather than assuming you know what’s best for them!
