The President’s fiscal year 2018 budget request slashes humanitarian aid by about 40% during a time of unprecedented global needs.
Foreign aid not only saves millions of lives, it also helps to build a safer and more stable world for all of us. And it makes up only about 1% of the budget.
In the coming months, it will be up to Congress to decide whether they will cut lifesaving assistance to millions of people -- including the 65 million people who are displaced globally and the 20 million people at risk of starvation in South Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen, and Somalia.
Your signature can help protect funding that is a lifeline for so many families at the very end of all hope. Urge your member of Congress to make a stand for foreign aid today.
