Development charities speak out over diverting aid to war zones

20 October 2010

The Guardian is carrying a strong piece today, highlighting the anger from several development charities over aid spending, including Save the Children and Oxfam. The Government’s plans militarise aid spending and would lead to many very poor, but stable, countries losing out on aid.

We at LCID believe this is dangerous. We will be releasing a full statement later today, but in the meantime, if you have any comments, please post them below.
