Operation Blessing International

From dKosopedia

Operation Blessing International Relief and Development Corporation (OBI) was founded on November 14, 1978 by televangelist and right-wing poltical figure Pat Robertson, as "a non-profit humanitarian organization based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, dedicated to alleviating human need and suffering in the United States and around the world."

OBI as a corporation, was set up with donated items from viewers of The 700 Club, Robertson's daily television program. Through his ostensibly charitable organization, Operation Blessing International, Robertson claims to have spent $1.2 million bringing aid to refugees in Rwanda. His critics, such as Greg Palast, however showed that the money was actually spent to bring heavy equipment for Robertson's African Development Corporation, a diamond mining operation.
