Website bridges charity-needy gap

Betterplace.org allows direct donations to projects, cutting out charity overheads.

    A new website is helping people donate to some of the neediest people around the world.

    Betterplace.org allows people to donate directly to specific projects rather than going through established charities which can have significant overheads.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from an orphanage in Lwala, in Western Kenya, that has been a beneficiary of Betterplace.
