Do you give money to beggars? Why/why not?

No! Begging in Sri Lanka is a mafia that is run by strongmen who receive a commission out of beggar-money. Some female beggars even carry infants that are drugged to sleep 'business hours'. This is a proven fact out of formal research, which makes me sick thinking of giving money to street beggars.
However, I offer food if they are in need of food. Also, I often donate to charity, and to identified individuals who are in need of funds to cover medical expenses.
