NGOs blocking corporate Tsunami aid

Ethical Corporation, 11 January 2005 - A Hong Kong-based charity group has said that corporations are frustrated they cannot find outlets for their donations of goods and services for the communities ravaged by last month's tsunami.

Sally Begbie, director of the Global Hand group, which redestributes unused products given by firms, told Ethical Corporation that the corporate sector is finding it too difficult to find charities who will accept goods and services from them.

"There is a degree of corporate frustration at the moment. Many corporations want to give product. They are feeling impotent," she says.

She believes many have given up trying to give as a result.

Global Hand’s concerns have been confirmed by at least one industry group Ethical Corporation has spoken to.
