GoFundMe later reinstated the campaign – a restaurant training and employment program for youth in Uganda – but only after references to Bitcoin were removed from the description at the request of GoFundMe’s staff.
Bitcoin.com contacted GoFundMe to ask if there is any official policy regarding Bitcoin specifically, or campaigns using alternate donation channels.

We should all boycott GoFundMe until they change their policies. You should think they would stick to the most important things in life to offer a

service that benefit the people, not their own f#$#% pockets. The politics behind these decisions make me go crazy with anger. It just shows you,

why people operate sites likes this.. not to help other people, but for their own benefit first.  Angry Angry Angry Angry

Politics from the highest levels never do something without putting themselves in front of anything. Especially when it comes to countries from the African continent. Themselves first, people last. These countries don't like Bitcoin at all as it gives people power and financial freedom. In that aspect I'm not really surprised by this.
