Rana Plaza Donor Trust Fund not yet half full

A compensation scheme for families of...[Rana Plaza Building Collapse]...victims of the tragedy as well as survivors was set up...but since donations were not mandatory, the pot still remains comparatively empty...The Rana Plaza Arrangement estimated that the fund would need to collect $40 million to cover the expected claims...As of August 4 2014, the current total is just under $17.9 million; the fund is not yet half-full… Neither US retailer JC Penney or Italian multinational Benetton have contributed, despite clothing destined for their shop floors being found amongst the rubble of Rana Plaza."
