    Hi Duncan,
    Just a thought. Sexual abuse, transactional sex are an enormous problem in some regions of the world. Drc being one of them. Keeping our beloved Aid Organisation Clean and Pure, might help us to collect more money, but it will not help the women a lot. We will sleep better knowing it is not our money. Something about our priorities: cleaning up our organization and our staff, doesn’t sit well with me. Could you explain what I feel? Is it linked to the decolonization of aid debate?

    Kind regards,
