Extend The World War Veterans and Their Families Citizenship. Give Them Well Deserved Access to Medical Treatment.

Mothers Do Not Abandon and Forget Fallen and Scarred Surviving Heroes. British Government Did!

African & Asian WW2 Veterans.

Scandalous those Asian and African soldiers were paid, as the evidence in the war related documents show far less than white soldiers.

Wed 13 Feb 2019 “Africans who fought for British army paid less than white soldiers” https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/13/african-british-army-paid-less-than-white-soldiers

Tories are Way over Due in Action.   No Aid/ Money Paid To The Day.

First announcement made in June 2018 by Secretary of State for International Development of the United Kingdom.

It is not enough. People who laid their lives defending The Queen and  country, totally forgetting and abandoning them to destitution is very harsh treatment of the none white soldiers. Where is Their Pension?

Where they compensated?

After the war at some point they should have enjoyed and spent in comfort their remaining years. But that was not the case, having won their war on the front fighting poverty was not what they were expecting after the war.

Time to Heal the Wounds.

Announcements come plenty from the Ministers / Politicians. Deeds are rare indeed.

Government must take a sincere look at the problems faced by the living veterans and families. Give them lump sums, not two weekly based meals.

Make amends, but Honestly.

“I am Samba Jallow, the son of Sabella Jallow, veteran of Royal West African Frontier Force. My father, and his family had never benefited from any fund that is meant for the veteran……and even if there is funds available for the veterans, we have no knowledge about it”

“My father and his friends, who served in the West African Frontier Force, were abandoned to destitution. They never have any access to medication or funds to take Care of their well beings.”

“Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.” Penny Modaunt

Only to be abandoned?

Commonwealth Aid Receiving Nation,s ordinary public rarely see anything on the scale that is boasted about by our politicians in UK government. If at all.

In many cases, aid receiving nations’ public have for many decades rejected aid packages with strings attached.

Adding salt to the wounds of WW2 commonwealth veterans! “Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.” Says Penny Mordaunt.

Strategic goal aims are not compatible in terms of the needy people buried in  poverty and in Cemeteries across Asia, Middle East and Africa.

 

In some cases, the only bread winning member of the family was persuaded to join the war leaving no one to take care of the remaining family and kids. Over a million African soldiers had joined  WWll to serve their Queen and mother country.

Politicians need to take a deep look at how the aid is distributed.  In the case of African and Asian soldiers, their right to some type of payment, and compensation needs to be looked at.

The African nations’ Second World War veterans, the abandoned and the forgotten – whatever happened to their dues?

What ever happened to their pensions?

George Medal Awarded for Bravery

There is clear evidence ,in parts of the world, veterans who survived the 2nd world war have died of destitution.

And those that live? They are still fighting war, fighting the extreme poverty with no hope of ever coming out of their tragic situation.

Confused!

Christian Aid warns Penny Mordaunt against ‘playing politics’ with international aid

International development secretary Penny Mordaunt has been criticised by charities including Christian Aid for suggesting Britain’s commitment to spending 0.7 per cent of gross national income on aid is ‘unsustainable’.

Mordaunt, who is tipped as a prospective candidate in the Conservative Party leadership elections, has said private funding should be part of the target. She has also said Britain’s aid spending should be more closely aligned to its strategic goals.”
