War on Want

Political Charity loses government funding



Britain has a charity not dissimilar to New Zealand’s Kia Ora Gaza that is called the War on Want. This month it had state funding pulled because of its backing of anti Israel rallies. Charities should be about helping people with food, education, clothing and shelter. Both the War on Want and Kia ora Gaza are more about political activism than charity so they should not be in possession of state funds or recognised as a charity.
