Oxfam warns that millions of poor people will go without life-saving food and medicines as donor aid pledges to poor countries are breached

Oxfam has warned that millions of poor people will go without life-saving food and medicines as donor aid pledges to poor countries are breached.

Responding to figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that shows aid from rich countries was US$125.586 billion in 2012 - a real terms fall of US$5.36 billion.

Jeremy Hobbs, executive director of Oxfam International, points out that this cut in aid is going to cost lives since poor countries' reserves have been depleted by the global economic crisis.
