    i shared the video, i have researched and dont believe i will donate to them as i dont really like what i've read.

    Kony and the LRA are no longer operating in Uganda, they have moved to sudan and other countries neighbouring Uganda so I don't see how military in Uganda will result in Konys capture

    the awareness raised is amazing though, i read about this issue as a teen and my heart broke but i had no idea where to start or what to do.

    The information I've found is that MEND supports women to make handbags to sell- correct me if I'm wrong, but where did you get that from? http://www.mend.co/

    I got the information here, here, and here (just three of the many I read). Considering their financial reports only say 'Mend', it's incredibly difficult to say what they're actually supporting. If they're willing to elaborate on their financial reports, I'm more than willing to re-evaluate my thoughts.

    I thought they had some good answers to the criticism just to be clear.

    As I said in the other thread. Those answers from IC have failed to answer many of the criticisms from the actual experts in the field. I would also like to hear their response to the criticisms from the Ugandan victims who saw the film and were offended by it.
