Australian philosopher Peter Singer, especially for those who have a similar question, came up with the concept of “effective altruism”, which about ten years ago gave rise to the movement of the same name. An effective altruist is a person who tries to reduce the amount of pain and suffering in the world, but tries to do it as efficiently as possible, relying on statistics and scientific data, focusing on such coefficients as “number of lives saved for a dollar”, “years of life adjusted for working capacity”, reports of the World Health Organization, etc.
Singer suggests that everyone spend 10% of their income on charity. At the same time, effective altruists organize special companies to evaluate the effectiveness and transparency of charitable initiatives, such as GiveWell. These companies help make sure that the money spent on charity is spent as intended.

Kindergarten and not reasoning. In Buddhist practice, there are several ways to live your life properly and get closer to the Buddha. 1) Help yourself and live a righteous life (Small way) 2) Helping the whole world, making it a better place and saving others to save yourself(The big way). If you help one or two, the world will be a better place. And the point is not that you helped one and left the other out but that by helping at least one you make the world a better place.
Honestly, honestly. Help those who come your way. If you still have extra strength , go look for someone else to help. No, not really. Do what you can, not with us. The Lord will not accuse you of injustice for this. And his opinion is the only opinion that really matters (if you're an atheist, replace ” god “with ” universe”).
It depends on how many people are willing to work. The more he works, the more people he can help. On this topic, there is a good movie ” Pay another (Pay It Forward)”. The idea is that help does not disappear in the universe, but becomes the cause of other help and further along the branching chain. Therefore, everyone deserves help, but parasitic people who are not ready to help others must first be taught to help, because this will be the best help for them.
Choose from all the people in need that you could help, the most (most) needy and help them in descending order of need. It would be fair to those who needed less.
