Genuine aid that really get's to the poor can save lives and make a huge difference to millions of people.
The European Union and its member states have a long track record in giving development aid to poorer countries across the world.
What's counted as aid is 'Official Development Assistance' (ODA). In total, the European Union gives some €53 billion in ODA.
Several years ago, European governments promised to meet the Millennium Development Goals target of giving 0.7% of their national gross national income (GNI) as aid.
But recently EU aid has started to fall, with national governments failing to meet their development targets.
