A charity that has been working with victims of the Bangladesh building collapse has described the lack of compensation from western brands supplied by the factory as "indefensible".
Farah Kabir, ActionAid’s Country Director in Bangladesh said:
It’s indefensible that for nearly six months, multi million pound companies have left victims to fend for themselves.
While corporations sit on their hands, the victims of the Rana Plaza disaster are in urgent need of medical and psychological support, as well as the financial means to feed and care for their families.
After meeting some of those affected by the factory collapse in Bangladesh, it is clear that trade partners like the UK have a role to play.
Six months after the garment factory disaster at Rana Plaza in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, victims are still awaiting compensation.
