Having said that, Mr Shawcross does not sufficiently distinguish between delivery of physical aid, especially in emergencies (where most of the leading charities in fact use the private sector), and "in country" development. Helping poor people to stand on their own feet long-term requires an acceptance of that help. Such acceptance will not be given to "business" organisations where "business" is perceived by those in need to be part of their problem. Unfortunately, that is the reality in many parts of the world.
