There are two possible reasons I can think of.
I almost disagreed because while it's definitely a good thing to help developing nations, I don't feel that developed countries are obligated to do so. For the developing country the aid helps build their economy and can save lives depending on how bad the conditions are, but for the developed country there are no real benefits other than preventing feeling guilty because you are not helping.
The other possibility is because aid money sometimes comes with strings attached. The money helps on the short term but if it comes with trade concessions or resource rights it can do long term damage. This is to say nothing of the times when aid has concealed covert action like undermining or overthrowing a government that is not friendly enough to the country giving aid (the US has done this a few times).
I don't know why people are disagreeing with it because by giving money it will only help the people as well as the economy of the country.
