Save the Children executives shared a “performance related” bonus of £160,000 this year. On top of their handsome salaries.
The Against Malaria Foundation quotes the cost of a mosquito net as ‘about $5’, which at the current rate of exchange is about £3.
The ‘performance related bonus’ would therefore buy more than 50,000 mosquito nets.
Can’t help wondering if donations to Save the Children are being well-spent.
