The TaxPayers' Alliance has revealed that £1.5 million has been spent by the UK Government in Sudan through a peace and reconciliation foreign aid programme. The revelation comes as fighting rages on in Sudan and countries race to evacuate their civilians. The figures, exclusively shared with the Express, call into question the effectiveness of foreign aid spending.
Speaking to the Daily Express, which published the findings, Conor Holohan, media campaign manager of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“Clearly UK projects in Sudan haven't been delivering results.”
"Despite noble aims, UK Aid hasn't stopped the country from descending into chaos.
"Taxpayers need to know that every penny of foreign aid delivers on its promises."
