Diversion of Aid

08/12/2013

The DEC takes the risk of the aid we fund being diverted or stolen very seriously but there is no evidence we are aware of that this is happening in the Philippines.   Our member agencies have in place strong safeguards to ensure that the aid they deliver reaches the people for whom it is intended.  The Mail on Sunday article suggests government officials in the Philippines are delaying or diverting aid.  The DEC does not fund the delivery of aid through government channels.
