Where are they?
DfID claim they are funding organisations active in Sri Lanka and Indonesia, but where are they?
I have had two reports from Sri Lanka that indicate the only organisation found on ground in Ampala is Birmingham's IR.
I received a text message: "situation here critical. Still discovering bodies, Thousands homeless, hungry,desparate.Pain beyond imagining.we can't let them down. Future generations will never forgive us."
Why won't DfID offer funding to an organisation that is actually on the ground. DfID's last Situation Report has committed expenditure (including not finally approved) of £13 Million. Theoretically they have £37 Million at least left. The fact is that urgent action is needed now.
