We just got back from Sri Lanka in August. The situation there is still dire and the bigger “international” blogs are just not reporting the realities. Of course it’s hard, we know, but it’s disappointing nevertheless.
The US Marines did a fantastic job initially- helping to clean the place up – but as one finds with so many of these UN and govt. run relief efforts, three things happen to the money being sent by well-meaning people from around the world.
These are the areas that of concern that Charities Blog would like to highlight and discuss over September, as it serves as a useful example of the donor-fundraiser-victim/area of need “process” that is found throughout charities from small to large, and not just the Post-Tsunamis Disaster Relief Effort.
