Yeah, I'd imagine they avoid the slums where people actually need it so as not to get knifed.

I also heard that the millenium village project completely warped the economy of the area and created permanent shanty towns around the handout zones.

Yeah, when they get hit with some disaster all these aid organizations ask for money to send them food, which is easy and looks get. What it does is destroy the agricultural economies of these areas and countries, driving farmers out of jobs and once the free food supply dries up there is no one growing any food and they get hit with famine. Then aid organizations ask for money for food and it all starts over again. The lack of forethought to how these economies are going to be effected is what is really fucking these countries over.
