The UK government has just increased its aid from £15m to £50m (around $96m). UK charities have already raised £25m (around $48m) as well. Good news.

World Bank: $250m (hey, whaddya know! It’s good for something after all)
UK: $96m
EU: $44m
US: $35m
Canada: $33m
Japan: $30m
Australia: $27m
France: $20.4m
Denmark: $15.6m
