I would strongly agree with all of Catharine’s points. The formation of food assistance projections by groups that operate outside of a government framework doesn’t guarantee that they’ll be followed or even recognised; practicalities of following their suggestions, politics, internal conflict and local skepticism toward nonprofit groups can all hinder their ability to be implemented. And if you operate outside of the blessings or framework of a given government, you have the additional struggle of identifying and coordinating with (a) other nonprofits to ensure there isn’t an overlap with your objectives, and (b) local communities and the various organisations crucial to your success, e.g. logistics, distribution centres, etc. etc.
