Quotes

..."In those very remote areas there are no streets and of course no market," Brombacher explains. "But that is no problem when you produce drugs. Coca leaves or opium poppies are non-perishable goods. You can have a stock full of cocaine for five years and it will never rot. So often people grow these drugs because it is easier to sell. They don't need a street, town or market. The trafficker will come directly to the farm gate."
...The perception that such aid is helping African countries "has facilitated a perverse reality in which the UK and other wealthy governments celebrate their generosity whilst simultaneously assisting their companies to drain Africa's resources" , the report claims...
"That circumvents the training an optician needs in order to operate an ophthalmoscope and understand its results" , says Livingstone. "Anybody can conduct the eye exam."
"Legacy income only provides just over 1% of our global income. This is despite the fact that in the UK legacy income is worth over 2bn and makes up 13% of all money given to charities. We realised we should be doing better." For more on VSO's story, visit http://www.theguardian.com/global-development-professionals-network/2014/jul/30/vso-legacy-fund-dfid-donors
