Parliament Unable To Judge What Aid For Developing Countries Has Achieved

An investigation by the BOR, an office of officials working for the parliament, has concluded that it is impossible to judge what Dutch aid for developing countries has achieved.  4.1 billion Euro are being spent each year to help the poorest in the world.  The government general accounting office had reached the same conclusion earlier.  The responsible Minister, Ploumen, says that the Dutch development aid package has improved the food situation for about 8 million people.  Labor parliamentarian Roelof says that his party is proud of the results, as 800 million condoms have been distributed, which have prevented many undesired pregnancies.
