Wahlström: Tsunami Pledges in the Bank, Please

Published onsdag 9 februari 2005 kl 12.23

Margareta Wahlström, special envoy of U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, has levelled strong criticism against U.N. member states saying not enough money has come in to provide provisional housing for the tsunami victims in Southeast Asia.

Large sums of money have been pledged, and Wahlström begged governments to turn their pledges into hard cash. Speaking in Geneva on Monday, she said, ”it’s only cash in the bank that makes it possible to do work on the ground.”

So far US$977 million has been promised, but only US$360 million has reached the world body’s coffers.
