Donor Discrimination

Jan Egeland (the very same Jan Egeland who accused the US of being 'greedy' after the tsunami disaster) is accusing donor states of discriminating against Africa.

She says that we donate more readily to disasters in Europe and Asia than to disasters in Africa, where the aid is usually much more critical to survival.

How about the fact that we've been giving and giving and giving and giving for at least forty years to Africa and we're not seeing any improvement? Maybe we're tired of giving and we expect some better use of our money, like we see in the areas we're more likely to give to.

Mr. Egeland needs to get a life.
