I was just watching CH4 news and there was a report on the aid that Africa recieves from Unicef and USAid- food packages that are supposed to go to Africa in the places where they need it most.
This aid is actually being pilfered by the people who are meant to be delivering it to the locals, and they are selling it on the black market. Apart from that, they are opening fire on the locals who ask for their ration tokens but do not have any money.
It showed a hospital where there was a starving 16 month old baby who's mother had no money so could not give in to their bribes and therefore had to starve.
It was very heart breaking and all I could think of was how lucky we are.
What I want to know is why this has not been publicised before the last few weeks where it has been 'uncovered' and why unicef as still denying the figures that are being traded- at least 1/2 of the aid was being sold in markets for profit.
