Charities must be held to account

LAST year, the 15-person staff of UNICEF Ireland raised €8.42m in public voluntary donations, plus €74,174 from selling greeting cards and €41,365 from special events.
Total income generated from the compassionate Irish public was almost twice the 2009 level.
Donors and buyers of Unicef greeting cards presume their modest contribution reaches deprived children desperately requiring the basics to survive.
