Incidentally, it is not actually correct to say that the excellent agency Action Contre La Faim was "the first aid agency last month to travel deep into the interior" ("Aid agencies pull out of Sierra Leone", 9 August). Hope and Homes for Children has been supporting 80 orphaned or abandoned children and their surrounding community of more than 1,000 people in the northern region throughout the recent conflict.
There are other, lower-key ways of delivering aid which do not create attention.
