Getting more money from other sources, particularly from private donors in the United States, has been more of a challenge, aid agencies admit.

While the U.K. public now seems to be responding generously, “public response across other countries — in Italy, for example, and the U.S. — has perhaps been a bit lower,” ActionAid’s Taylor said.

Public opinion of Pakistan is seen as one factor in the slower response. Pakistani media reports also suggest that their public believes mistrust of the government in Islamabad is turning donors away.
