Well,

The worlds biggest donors really shook the Asian "Tsunami" hit countries.

Here is the report HOW.

The USA "pledged" $857 billion to the Tsunami hit but "allocated" just $366 billion.

Australia "pledged" $739billion but "allocated" just $136 billion

Germany "pledged" $643 billion but "allocated" just $126 billion

Canada "pledged" $341 billion but "allocated" just $125 billion.


ISN't That Shocking?

On the other Hand JAPAN "pleadged" $500 billion but "allocated" $552 billion.


(Source:- "The Hindustan Times" India's Daily. )


No Offence Intended.

Here are TWO LINKS (plz copy and paste them)

Link 1 :- http://www.aljazeera.com/me.asp?service_ID=8202

Link 2 :- http://www.smh.com.au/news/Asia-Tsun...?oneclick=true

IIRC Australia's pledge was to span over 5 years. So they are a bit behind on that but as long as that money is allocated in the next 5 years budget its great.

Also to save confusion when making statements like that you may want to link to the website where you got those facts from. It makes it alot eaiser. So for the above claims you may want to link showing where you got the allocated funds from.

Cheers

It shouldn't matter, money was never the issue, the Phillipines even said that they didn't need their friggin money, because they themselves had plenty of reserves. What they did need however were skilled engineers, medical assistance, and transportation.

Which they got and many soldiers and engineers from all countries are still in the region helping with the rebuilding process.

LINKS PROVIDED in first Post.

But what i wanna say is that the Rebuilding state in Sri Lanka and Indonasia is real bad ... They NEED MONEY and when the WORLD DONORS are not Donating its real Tough for them.

Countries like India and Phil. refused donations does not mean everyone can Do without them.

No Offence intended plz [img]smile.gif[/img]

The first meeting of the joint commission overseeing the distribution of money to Indonesia's tsunami victims has allocated barely one-tenth of the $1 billion of aid pledged by the Australian Government.
This means they have finally decided to do with aprt of the money. The rest is still unalocated because they are deciding on where to best spend it. The reason that the money is comming out slowly is that if they flood the country with money then alot of it will be lost due to mis-managed funds or corruption.

The other article is from Aljazeera so I don't think I will comment on those findings since I have read alot of one sided articles posted on there before.

Also moveing this to the CE Forum.
