U.K. Department for International Development
Justine Greening bid goodbye to her role as U.K. secretary of state for international development early this month following a shake-up in British politics after David Cameron stepped down from his post as prime minister. Theresa May, who took over the reins from Cameron, has appointed Member of Parliament Priti Patel as the new U.K. aid chief. Patel will be leading the U.K. Department for International Development, which handles the bulk of U.K. foreign aid, during a period of uncertainty as Britain prepares its exit from the European Union.
