carr is spending money to help people.

is there any reason he, and the others like him, can not do so much good right here in the good ole usa? every night there''s comments about how we have hungry, poor, etc.

people here in the usa.

why not take advantage of the opportunity here? jole adopts minority children from their home country and takes them to whereever she''s living at the time.

this may come as a surprise, but the usa has an abundance of minority children with few chances for adoption.

how many would she/him/they like?Reply to this comment by October 26, 2008 8:24 PM PDT As a two-time Anglican mission visitor to southern Malawi, Mozambique''s next door neighbor across the Shire River and Lake Malawi, I have seen and felt the needs of the people, and their generosity and joy, which we could all use more of.

That beautiful country and its people and our short visit to lovely Mozambique, changed my life forever.

Tourism is indeed an answer: to rebuilding a sustainable economy there, to saving God''s fantastic creation, to our learning that our way is not the only way, and that we all must join together to save the earth and each other -- as the Earth Charter says.

I wish there was a way I could become more involved! God bless Greg Carr and his vision!Reply to this comment by mikebwaugh October 26, 2008 9:03 PM PDT As one who grew up near the Kruger National Park, in neighboring South Africa - my congratulations to Greg Carr for everything he is doing in Gorongosa.

Wildlife is Africa''s greatest asset, it is to be appreciated, respected and revered.

His work serves as a model of how the people of Mozambique can really benefit from this magnificent resource.

I can only hope that maybe one day, I can get there to see it as well, or contribute to its future sucess.Reply to this comment by e27158 October 26, 2008 11:02 PM PDT I applaud Greg Carr...but wish he would take a momnet to think about his own country.

His voicemail creation that earned him a 200 million pay day would probably go a long way in the US.Reply to this comment by godssweetie October 26, 2008 11:41 PM PDT We can help Greg Carr if he needs medical equipment or supplies.

We run a non-profit group that provides hospital, clinic equipment and medical supplies to needy countries at no cost to the clinics or hospitals.

We can even send over doctors to help set up the equipment and show them how to use the equipment.

(We just completed such a project in Zambia at the Sons of Thunder Clinic.) He can contact us at [email protected] to this comment by spiritofhope October 27, 2008 12:04 AM PDT Thank you Greg Carr, and Scott Pelley and team for a compelling piece on the plight of Mozambique.

However, why do you feel the need to be hiv aids promoters? Have any of you read a single of the more than 30 dissident books on this? How healthy do you think you would be if you lived as these people live? Extended bellies are not from hiv, they are from malnutrition.

There are 70 known and proven factors that cause hiv antibody tests to show positive, including malaria, and many common parasites that are endemic to southern Africa.http://www.virusmyth.com/aids/hiv/cjtestfp.htmAnd I''ll bet that if these people were even given an HIV test, the ONLY hiv test that was given was a single highly flawed elisa test.

These are very vulnerable and illiterate people who need serious assistance to become self sustaining.

They need food, clean water, mosquito nets, hygiene, education, accurate diagnoses and treatments for illnesses, and most of all, they need hope for their futures.

They do not need false diagnoses and stigma, followed by toxic black label aids drugs to be washed down by dirty and parasite ridden water.

I beg of you, to kindly educate yourself as to the facts that the growing dissident movement has been trying to get public for 20 long years.

Africa''s problems have nothing to do with a sexual boogeyman hiv virus, and EVERYTHING to do with other obvious factors.

The "publish" button kept saying that it was deactivated and would be back on shortly.Reply to this comment by quashgal October 27, 2008 12:22 AM PDT I am a single woman running a small jungle resort in Belize, Central America.

I have spent the last 17 years rescuing wildlife and continue.

We are bottling spring water from caves here in an effort to raise money for saving these animals.

I am interested in investing in land for a small eco/tourist destination in the future, AND more importantly to help rescue wildlife over there as well and/or helping some way with this project in my free time by way of volunteer work some months out of the year.I have already been thinking of heading to Rwanda to do the same and now this came up.

Please write me and send contact names to Donna Young.

E-mail: [email protected] I want to participate.

Thank You for your vision!Reply to this comment by enghox October 27, 2008 1:06 AM PDT Our daughter is part of a group from the University of Portland who are going to Afica this summer to establish a permanent mission program for the students in Afica.

This sounds like a great place for them to visit and establish a working relationship that would bring students back every year to work.

Please send us the email address of Jim''s foundation so we can get them in touch with each other.

We were jsut in Africa this summer and the wildlife and the people will bring tourists.

Mr.

Carr has the right idea for helping these people become self reliant.Reply to this comment by oldpoet-2009 October 27, 2008 2:09 AM PDT Posted by tradewinns it''''s so nice that mr.

how many would she/him/they like? ------------------------------------------------------I agree.

I''m sick of all these rock stars, movie stars and rich jerks who seem to think that no one here in America needs help.

I understand the problems in other parts of the world but hell, let''s fix the problems in our own back yard.

I''m a St.

Vincent de Paul volunteer who sees the poverty and disease right here in America every day.Reply to this comment by au_fait October 27, 2008 9:47 AM PDT yes vote for Obama, even more reason to move our jobs overseas as taxes on our companies will rise (it will happen).

you really do not understand why companies move and people with money move/hide it.

You want to do something, give tax incentives to the companies that will bring their jobs back home.

Oh no we can''t do that as that would be benefits for large firms.

You want fair, flat tax everyone.

Also reduce and ween people from handouts, illegals to begin.

If they don''t like it, let them go home.Reply to this comment by walkshe October 27, 2008 11:33 AM PDT I think everyone here forgets the fact that Greg Carr is spending his own money, money that HE made, on this venture.

It''s his choice how he spends it.

The world has gotten so small that helping on a global scale is much the same as helping your neighbor in this day and age.

I applaud his efforts.

Think of all of the millionaires and billionaires that spend money only on themselves, never helping others, or if they do help, it''s in a way that they never dirty their hands with an honest days work.

Why should politics be brought into play here.

It''s one man doing good work - plain and simple.Reply to this comment by tvdos October 27, 2008 12:27 PM PDT I am disappointed in the producers'' characterization of Mr.

Carr as a savior without any critical consideration of the dynamics of power here.

Why is it that someone with so much money can gain so much power to be able come into a huge land area and make it a personal playground- to dictate how things should run? It is a contemporary version of prazeros (European lords of large pieces of territory in Mozambique''s history) and a continuation of the colonial history in the area of outsiders coming in and directing how things should operate.

60 Minutes is known for its balanced and investigative reporting.

Why was this not followed through here? I know for a fact that there is a lot of controversy in Gorongosa over Mr.

Carr and his group''s plans for the park and the district, and none of this received any attention.

The residents of the district were made to look poor, desperate, passive, and uncritical.

This is far from the reality.

The result of this feature is disappointing- the producers were hosted by Carr, and present his story only.

The result is more like propaganda for the Carr Foundation than a really balanced look at the situation in Gorongosa on the ground or the history of conservation in the region.Reply to this comment by sandrita1-2009 October 27, 2008 3:20 PM PDT Gorongosa was originally a preserve for trophy hunters.

Once the numbers of animals are restored, what''s to prevent these hunters from persuading officials with money to let them come in again and kill the animals? If that happens, what is the point of Mr.

Carr''s efforts?Reply to this comment by ceejay8888 October 27, 2008 7:49 PM PDT Hi AllMr.

Carr is doing a fantastic job putting all his own money in that country.

I think only when one have seen death because of hunger and the poverty over there,can you realy know the severity of famon in a country and what is happening right now in Zimbabwe.

If one man can make such a huge difference, wish more rich millionaires can do something like this.....boils down to care for your neighbour phylosophy.......The $$$ is a huge help over there....and it goes a very long way, food hospitals, schools, etc.Mr.

Carr, thank you for your help and opening your heart to these poor people.CV - former south africanSan DiegoReply to this comment by MekhongKurt October 28, 2008 8:10 AM PDT I applaud Mr.

Carr for his work.To those who argue he should devote some of his wealth, do a little research.

He has founded these:Kennedy School of Government (http://www.hks.harvard.edu/cchrp/)Gregory C.

Carr Foundation http://(www.carrfoundation.org/)He has devoted considerable money to various causes -- right inside the U.S.

And he has been on the boards of several other philanthropic foundations.So, if he wants to branch out to a country where the poverty makes most of our poor look rather better off -- and no, I''ve not cold-hearted to our own homeless, etc.

-- it''s hard to see why he shouldn''t.

Heck, I''m an American living in Thailand, and while I''ve seen plenty severe poverty, I haven''t seen any so bad as the people in Mozambique suffer (according to what I''ve read, and heard from people who''ve been there).As for the political diatribes -- please get a life.

This is a story about one man''s charity work in Africa, not our presidential election.Reply to this comment by mussicadzi October 30, 2008 1:10 AM PDT Mozambique has a big potential to welcome tourists and Gorongosa is really a wonderful place.

I would recommend to those of you that can afford to travel to Africa to come here and see for yourself the good that this 20 year''s project is doing and how is changing the situation of local communities.

People like Greg Carr deserve respect and admiration and I wish that other wealthy people were doing similar things.Reply to this comment See all 26 Comments Add a comment Comment SUBMIT Click here to add another comment.
