I really do not care, I don't think we should judge our efforts by whether or not others are doing it. I'm happy that 2p in the pound goes to help save lives outside the UK.That's not very helpful is it?
If this is part of a multi national effort then fair play to them. If it's a solo effort which provides a reason for the execs to go on jollies around the world then it may be harder to justify.
Are volunteer crews getting to help on these courses?
