I reckon these ads just go to prove that most of the foreign aid money DOESN'T get to where it's actually needed.
Corruption a huge problem.

Re: Foreign Aid Cut

Yet another charity was on the TV ads last evening - The British Red Cross now has its begging bowl out for 10 donations towards Covid vaccinations. And there was me thinking all the G20 countries had promised to donate all their spare vaccine.
