China Trails Ikea in Typhoon Aid

from
,

China has been widely criticised for its disappointing response to the disaster in the Philippines. China initially pledged a mere $100,000 in humanitarian support for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan before raising this to $1.6 million.

This pales in comparison to donations from the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and others. Swedish furniture company Ikea has even donated more aid than China, pledging $2.7 million.
