Charlie Pickering on Australian aid


Charlie Pickering unpacks the debate on Australian aid and aid cuts.  It’s brilliant and well worth a watch and a share – it busts a lot of myths about aid.

    THANK YOU Charlie Pickering! As a long-time Make Poverty History campaigner, I have heard too many “first our own backyard” comments, and seen a decrease in support for overseas aid by people of all ages – from students receiving but not appreciating their free education, to pensioners with their free medical care, hearing aids, hip replacements etc.
    Bless you for trying to set the record straight..
