Thieves gravitate to large sums of money. That's why it's not surprising that a $21 billion development fund, established by celebrities to fight aids, malaria, and other health issues, is being pilfered.
According to the Associated Press, two-thirds of some grants from this fund have disappeared due to corruption, even though it was established to avoid similar concerns with the United Nations. Although this fund has saved lives, thieves have undermined its effectiveness.
Many more lives could be saved if these crooks heeded Paul's words in Ephesians 4:28, "He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need."
The nations and celebrities funding this effort need to hold these thieves accountable.
