Aid agencies work to reduce overheads

The chairman of one of Australia's largest overseas aid groups says his and other relief funds are doing all they can to reduce overheads to maximise tsunami relief donations.
Care Australia's Tony Eggleton says a meeting of aid groups with the Governor-General today highlighted the need to limit administrative costs.
So far, $83 million has been donated to relief funds.
Mr Eggleton says he and the other aid group heads want to see as much of that money get to the victims as possible.
"We're all very conscious of this, we're all very aware that these generous people have a great expectation, and quite rightly so, that this money will go to help the suffering people," he said.
"And I think every agency will work on the basis of minimum overheads."
