Is it right to donate money to social work organisations?

[Shri Jayesh Pandey asked: Dandvat Namaskaram Swami ji! Is it right for me if I resist donating money to social service organisations coming at my doorstep? Dandvat Namaskaram to Swami ji and to His blessed devotees.]

Swami replied: You have to analyse a lot because in many social organizations, fraud is very common. If you think that it is better to serve the victim directly, it is good provided the victim is genuine. Today you can find that even victims are not genuine! The conclusion is that you shall reach the genuine victim and help him/her to the best of your capacity.
