  • José-Luis Barreiro García, ACF Country Director Colombia

“We are modelling a new way of how to respond to emergencies. And we are demonstrating that we are better, we are faster than other funds, like country based humanitarian funds. The [Start] Fund demonstrates that we can start activities within one week and no other donor, at this moment, is able to do that in this kind of emergency. Another way of doing things is possible.” Speaking about the Start Fund and its response to the Columbia oil spill.
