Demand International Aid that Helps - Rather Than Harms - PalestiniansSalem-News.com
A majority of the aid money that goes to Palestine is laden with stipulations according to the donor country’s preferences, priorities and values.
(BOSTON) - Between 1999 and 2009, international aid to Palestine increased by over 600 percent to $3.25 billion.¹
But, while billions of dollars are being spent, very little is actually being done to reduce poverty, increase rights, and promote stability in the region – and even less helps fund sustainable solutions.
This is why we’re asking you to lend your name to help to reform the international aid system.
Our ally, the Dalia Association, and other Palestinian NGOs would like you to join the global movement for aid reform today.
P.S. Read Dalia’s research report about what Palestinian operated NGOs said are the barriers and solutions to international aid. I hope you’ll join Grassroots in demanding for aid reform before the November 14th deadline.
