Stop taking African nurses


Read this article. It shows that all the aid in the world is still not going to help Africa one bit. What they need is for us to stop taking their nurses. You might think that we desperately need nurses but Africa needs theirs far more than we do.

The only way to help Africa is to train our own doctors and nurses and stop any of theirs coming here. Those doctors and nurses might want a better life by coming here but aren’t those people that stay in Africa entitled to a future too? How will Africa ever have a future when we take all their skilled personnel who could actually make a difference there?

Cleverest argument I've read in a long while.

I have always said that we should stop robbing the third world of their skilled people.
