Vanuatu Slams aid agencies

The Vanuatu government has slammed aid agencies swarming into the country in the aftermath of Cyclone Pam, claiming they are slowing down the process of getting help to people in need.Image result for cyclone pam

There were more than 100 NGOs and faith-based aid organisations in the country at present

“I have to apologise but I have to state the facts, we see this again and again and again (around the world).”

Shing said the government had lost valuable time dealing with the agencies and the initial damage assessment would have been completed earlier if this was not the case.

“The problem is everyone wants visibility…everyone wants their sign put on it.”

If they were really humanitarian organisations then putting signs up would not be necessary,

My personal recommendation – beef up NZ’s aid contributions and fill HMNZS Canterbury with food and supplies…

Another personal opinion, train the NZ Army to build infrastructure like the Roman legions of old

  1. Running down a Dream got me going. When my kids were still pretty young, we would go on holiday (long road trips) and play Into the Great Divide over and over. Every song was singable. Sorry I have nothing to contribute on the major substance of your post but can’t not acknowledge Tom Petty.
