Please give generously to Unicef

Hope for every bureaucrat

Dalrymple writes that staff of the United Nations Children’s Fund are in evidence in the streets of London and other Western towns and cities,

with beatific smiles on their faces, rattling their tins.

Please, if there is any decency in you, be charitable and donate. Dalrymple explains that Unicef needs to raise funds — large sums are needed — for Unicef employees’

  • annual leave
  • dependency allowances
  • medical insurance
  • dental insurance
  • pensions
  • rental subsidies
  • education grants
  • home leave
  • life insurance
  • paid sick leave
  • family leave
  • family visits
  • maternity leave
  • paternity leave
  • adoption leave
  • special leave

All these things cost money; please give as much as you can. And as you hand over your cash, dismiss from your mind the fact that Unicef is, as Dalrymple reminds us,

the perpetrator of one of the greatest mass poisonings in human history: arsenic in the water from ground wells in Bangladesh.
