Luxembourg leads in development aid.....

I know this isn't specifically related to the Grand Ducal Family but.....I heart the Grand Duchy not just the family...

Luxembourg is topped only by Sweden in making contributions to development aid. Last year Luxembourg donated 287.7 million Euros which amounts to around 0.95% of the gross national income.

I know that Luxembourg is one of the wealthiest places in the world per capita, but it is still small. It says a lot that this little land of only 486,006 people continue to dedicate so much of their resources to development of those who don't  have the luxury of being Luxembougers.
