U.N., NGOs Failing To Adequately Address Humanitarian Crises Despite More Resources, MSF Says

The Guardian: U.N. and NGOs focus more on securing funding than relief effort, says MSF
“The U.N. and international NGOs are failing to respond to humanitarian emergencies despite having more resources at their disposal than ever before, a medical charity has warned. In a damning report that criticizes crisis management in urgent situations such as conflict and mass displacement, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) says many organizations are more concerned with risk aversion and securing funding than providing a serious relief effort…” (Anderson, 7/7).
