International Aid Hurts Palestinian Society
Films • 10m
In International Aid Hurts Palestinian Civil Society grassroots civil society activists discuss their experiences with international aid. Frustration and anger are evident as Palestinians explain how their work is undermined by policies and procedures imposed by international donors and NGOs. This rare insight into the specific impact of international aid policy on recipient communities will make donors and tax-paying citizens reconsider what international aid is and what it should be. Made in the run-up to the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, the film is part of an advocacy campaign to reform aid led by Dalia Association.
Directors: Rama Mari & Dalia Association
