Survey Of E.U. Residents Shows Europeans Support Foreign Aid Despite Economic Crisis

“A new survey of European Union [E.U.] residents reveals that even an economic crisis doesn’t dampen Europeans’ support for aid,” Amie Newman, a communications officer and editor for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog, writes in the blog, noting, “Eighty-five percent of Europeans say that Europe should continue helping developing countries — primarily those, however, that are affected by a natural crisis or a conflict.” She adds, “On the other hand, the majority of respondents want to see emerging economies including Brazil, India, and China cut off from aid” (10/16).
