Top 10 Countries Receiving Foreign Aid In Africa

Written by Keren Mikva

10. Uganda – $1.655 billion

Uganda’s gross domestic product, listed at $21.48 billion in 2013, classifies it as a low-income, developing country. Of the 37.58 million population, 24.5 percent live below the national poverty line. Uganda has seen some of its foreign aid cut by countries protesting its recent passage of a anti-homosexuality law, including the Netherlands, Norway, and Denmark. Many countries are restructuring their aid programs away from the government and towards civic, nongovernmental groups.
