Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Less than 27 percent of the $3.5 billion aid pledged by international donors to help rebuild Gaza in the wake of unprecedented destruction caused by last summer’s Israeli Operation Protective Edge has been disbursed, a new report says.
The Association of International Development Agencies stated in its report, “Charting a New Course: Overcoming the stalemate in Gaza,” that while comprehensive data on individual pledges and disbursement has not yet been made publicly available, the World Bank found that only 26.8 percent ($945m) of the funding earmarked for Gaza had been disbursed so far.
“The promising speeches at the donor conference have turned into empty words,” Oxfam executive director Winnie Byanyima said. “There has been little rebuilding, no permanent ceasefire agreement and no plan to end the blockade. The international community is walking with eyes wide open into the next avoidable conflict, by upholding the status quo they themselves said must change.”
