BBC Radio 4 explores the impact of aid


A family in South SudanA radio documentary on BBC Radio 4 broadcast on Sunday 13th January 2013 examined international aid effectiveness. It included some coverage of Plan’s work and comments by Ndungu Kahihu, Mobilisation and Resource Manager in South Sudan.

In the programme, which was part of the series ‘Inside the Aid Industry’, respected journalist Edward Stourton explores how it is possible for extreme poverty and large slums, for example, to exist in areas where significant numbers of well-established international development charities and organisations work. The series has prompted some debate on the issues. The latest programme is available for you to listen to up to and including 19th January 2013.
