‘Struggle’ to spend tsunami funds

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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 😉
