RICH NATIONSare failing to deliver on their promises to tackle global poverty, the head of the Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (Sciaf) has said. In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Sunday

at Gleneagles. Participants at the summit had pledged US$50 billion in aid to developing countries by 2010, half of which was due to go to Africa, but Mr Chitnis said funding was currently about US$17 billion short of target. Speaking just days after last week’s UN

Millennium Development Goals summit in New York, where members reviewed the pledge in 2000 to halve global poverty by 2015, Mr Chitnis said the response has con- trasted with the reaction to the financial crisis. “The urgency with which governments

bailed out the banks a few years ago stands in stark contrast to the way in which govern- ments have responded to the lives of the poor,” he said. “Tens of billions of pounds were made available overnight to bail out the banks – and as far as I’m aware no banker has gone hungry because of the collapse of his bank – and yet every day tens of thousands of children lose their lives for no other reason than that they are born poor. I hold that a promise to the poor is an especially sacred promise … it’s extremely disappointing.”
