[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Bellow is extracts from UN Iraqi Oil Program report as at 31 March 2002Dear CASI members Bellow is extracts from UN Iraqi Oil Program report as at 31 March 2002.. I have selected the sectors and the amount “arrived” for each sector. I have calculated the “per person per month” figures by dividing the “arrived” by 22 millions and then dividing by 64 (number of months from Dec 1996- April 2002). I have added another column which is the percentage of each sector to the total “arrived “ goods. The table shows that each one of the 22 millions gets less than US$ 6.40 per month for food (cheap!), US$ 1.25 for health! (this includes medical equipments AND drugs). Education US$ 0.26, Housing US$ 0.77. In short for ALL the programs of Oil for food we get US$ 14.70 per person per month. With official figures like these no wonder why things as bad as they are. Food accounted for 43.48% of all arrived goods. Health 8.25% Education 1.77% Housing 5.25% This is the TRUE picture of the Oil for food program Forget about the BILLIONS it is misleading It is less than US$15 per month!
