Is The Poverty Aid a big business?

"Let's reach out to the impoverished." "They are helpless and can not do anything."~
The development of developing countries for-profit has been carried out capturing this such an image,
becoming now a huge industry with billions of dollars. With most of the aid activities failing and~ even causing damage to the ability and power that the recipient of the aid originally has.
What problems does our "Support" bring? What is the correct way of support?
A documentary that conveys the voices of people who are being supported at that time, mainly from Haiti and Africa.
