29/07/2011


DEC Chief Executive Brendan Gormley said:
 
“The food crisis in East Africa worsens day by day so the continuing generosity of the UK public is incredibly important.  The money that has been given is already making a big difference for many thousands of people but there is a huge amount of work still to be done.”
 
The DEC has today published its 2010-11 Annual Report which for the first time includes a break-down not just of the aid that has been delivered but how money was spent to deliver it.
 
One year after the floods DEC funds have been used to deliver aid to 1.8m people in Pakistan including shelter for 290,000 people, clean water for 510,000 people and food for one million people.
 
The cost breakdown focuses on the Pakistan Floods Appeal and shows:

  • 75% - purchase of goods including food, tents, medical supplies
  • 9% - international and local field staff including doctors and truck drivers
  • 7% - logistics including transport and warehousing
  • 6% - UK management support include monitoring, evaluation, recruitment and technical advice.
  • 2% - Staff support including food, travel, accommodation and security.
