Unfortunately, many of the problems you describe (beatings, torture, starvation, murder) are caused by small groups of corrupt, abusive leaders who exploit and do nothing to protect their citizens. What those countries need are good, strong, fair, effective, protective leadership. But, those are not things that Carter, Tutu or Branson can offer. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great that they do what they do. But nothing will significantly change until someone from within takes control of the government and runs the country properly.
