I wonder,,,,,,

Two things about this OXFAM article:
FIRST are they using the same criteria as they did in the '80s for 'disasters' today? Or is it getting more woosified ...'disaster-wise? I mean is a severe rain storm and the resultant flooding that they'd not hear about (and the people would have to help themselves out with) are now classified as a 'disaster' in dire need of immediate help?

SECOND, how does OXFAM get their money? I don't know, but somehow suspect that the more 'disasters' they respond to, the more money they make. There has never been a true 'non-profit' organization in human history- some-one -somewhere is or was getting something to make it worth their time.
