    Having lived and worked in Central Africa I know that it is a bottomless financial black hole. Any African that receives training will immediately leave for Europe or the USA, which benefits him but not his country.
    Only Africa can solve Africa’s problems. If we bring them here we will create African conditions here, which will benefit nobody.

    There is a saying,”Give man fish, and he will feed himself and his family fora day, give him a net and he will feed them and village forever”.While money is needed, themajorityof aid should be direct to those I needs, spades, forksand seeds etc.. The UN fid programs hive fod to individuals, they could easily extend this snd hand out tools, then a year later, they woild not have to hsndout food! This is not my idea, years ago i worked with a guy froUganda, I think it was, every year he sent about a ton of ex army entrenching tools to his home, where they were distributed to other villages, He returned in about 1984, and was greeted like a God, the whole district was fed, because of a few hundred quids worth of army surplus kit. Now that is real foriegn aid

    ‘Trade (and Education) not Aid’ is definitely the way to go. These peoples need to become dependent up on themselves not the West. ‘Dead Aid’ by Dambisa Moyo pretty much puts in a nutshell the lunacy of Western aid policy to Africa since the 1950’s.

    In time, giving foreign aid will have an advantage to us. I understand why some British people want to stop aid in total, but that is very harsh to those we wish to help, and the systems put forward by UKIP seem to be good for our country and good for the individuals we want to help.
    No more money passed to another nation, via a President or Government. Some Nations aid should stop all together, due to need not being addressed by the Government of that Nation, and wealth being used for benefits in expensive defense procurement. We really do need to get to grips with foolishness !
    The big winner however, would be the introduction of agriculture at a personal level, and trade possibilities. These items of aid have been very well put forward by UKIP, and is the way to go !
