The internet is blowing up with uber-skepticism about Mony Nop’s claim that he has “donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to help provide healthy, warm meals for those in need.” Apparently, Mony’s foundation raised only $111,000 during its six years of existence before it folded in 2018. That is a gross figure that excludes expenses, which are reported to be in the 70% range – a ratio unacceptable to most donors. Not surprisingly, the foundation’s annual reports list zero donations of food. Mony’s foundation didn’t raise anywhere near “hundreds of thousands” of dollars and didn’t use any of those funds to feed the needy. So where did this disinformation come from? A political action committee, of course!
