Supplying basic human needs: good or evil?

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: In another thread, Tom Craver recently posted:

"Giving people necessities to stay alive for a few weeks or months after they've lost everything - fine. Feeding their "basic material" needs year in, year out - bad, evil, foolish, counter-productive, flat out wrong approach."

I disagree with the second half of this statement. I do agree that providing basic needs as charity or welfare can be corrosive. But let me suggest a scenario to explore.
