We all hear about set events and charitable causes nowadays and main beneficiaries are usually that of people and places that needs rehabilitation or aids. In both cases, the prior one would garner the most attention since nothing beats the needs to provide help towards human life and comrades.
Places that have become dilapidated and abandoned get their share of causes as well, especially the ones that hold history of events. Such places would become preserved locations, holding memories and would eventually become tourist spots so that tourists and visitors may appreciate the story of the place in most cases.
People may think that such places can easily be replaced and renovated by new and well-improved infrastructure. However, maintaining and taking heed of what events occurred in the past of these places are what made most countries today and hence preservations in tow. While these projects may not solicit the usual attention that people in need would require, they also get their share of needs for help, mostly by people who know their history and why they should be preserved.
