via Sterilisation horror reveals India’s mothers risk lives for $11.

I will leave you to reflect on the effectiveness of India’s government. But I want to tackle another aspect of the challenge.

Surely, it’s time for donors to give money directly to the needy, not let donor funds get siphoned off by corrupt politicians and bureaucrats?

In my view, it’s time for major relief agencies, like the United Nations and the European Union to stop giving aid unless it goes directly to the needy.

Opinions?

  1. Dr Alf makes a good point which is why IMF and World Bank funding now goes to good causes in Africa directly rather than into the hands of several corrupt African dictators.

    India has endemic corruption and is poorly run so all aid from whatever source should go to the needy directly.

    In the case of the UK which is £1.3 trillion GBP in debt there should be no aid given to anyone and the Minister along with David Cameron and the unnecessary civil servants within that Ministry should be sacked.

    Ebola and diseases which threaten the UK should be dealt with by our military on an as needed basis but saving £12 billion gbp a year on aid alone plus the cost of the department would be an excellent place to start reducing the deficit.
