You have provided inadequate context and background to have a yes/no answer. In any case, different English-speaking countries use the terms differently. "Foreign aid" in BE normally refers to money used to help other countries. "Overseas development assistance" is a term used by the British Government when discussing assistance that may involve the deployment of personnel and resourcesas with or without direct financial aid. It doesn't include disaster relief, whereas the foreign aid budget does provide funds for such contingencies.is it right to say "overseas assistance" as a synonym for "foreign aid" ?
