Diaspora Bonds

Why should the Diaspora help to finance those who might be the main cause for them being an involuntary Diaspora?

Diaspora, because of the different risk perspectives on their home country, requires often higher interests in order to buy the bonds than those offered by international capital markets

Why should the Diaspora who is already sacrificing and remitting so much have to invest in securities that might not be the best suited for their personal risk profile? And which might in some cases precisely involve diversifying away as much as possible from their land of origin.
