Does Humanitarian Aid Have A 'White Savior' Problem?

Westerners get to work in developing countries without little experience and no one to hold them accountable. This seems to have been the case with Renee Bach, who started Serving His Children (SHC) in Uganda at 18 years old. The organization has been linked to several children's deaths. Bach's case has again highlighted the issue of medical "voluntourism" while raising questions of whether some charities in the developing world have a "white savior problem." In response, Uganda-based social workers Olivia Also and Kelsey Nielsen began the No White Saviors campaign to educate and advocate for better mission and development work practices. What do you think?
