Over third of donors' money goes in administrative expenses on int'l organizations, says minister

Yemen's Minister of Planning and Int'l Cooperation has said that a third of the international donors' funds to Yemen goes in administrative expenses for the international aid organizations themselves.

In an interview with the London-based Alsharq Al-Awsat newspaper and website, Waed Badheib said the int'l organizations "refuse to present bank statements" on their transactions and that the government is discussing with donors ways of finding substitutes. Badheib referred to the existence of national organizations with transparency and independence"

He also said, "We are still working to ensure and hoping to see the donors place their confidence in the government to deal with it directly instead of through third parties."

Badheib has warned that the food insecurity problem "is exacerbating because of the Houthi unwillingness to adhere to ceasefire and sit for talks," coronavirus pandemic, floods and other reasons.
