The Jakarta Post - Managing aid for humanitarian crises: "Managing aid for humanitarian crises
Jan Egeland, Jakarta
Indonesia, Somalia, Sudan, Bosnia, Rwanda, Cambodia -- all too often, the acute suffering of millions of people is ignored or recognized only after death, disease and despair have taken a horrific toll. Some crises, like the tsunami, galvanize the world's attention. But most crises fall under the shadow of our collective neglect, leaving countless families from Asia to Africa and beyond without the most basic humanitarian assistance. At a time when the rich world has never been larger or more prosperous, our neglect of human suffering continues to be as persistent as it is pervasive."
