‘Struggle’ to spend tsunami funds

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

This is the inherent problem with DEC campaigns for single disasters. As I’ve said before, it would be much better all round if it was up to the charities to divide the income between all of their projects, sending money where it is most needed, and not spending disproportionate amounts on one particular disaster.

This 350th post was filed under: Tsunami 2004.

If I am, then it certainly isn’t an intentional push 😉
