While countries are facing the threat of famine and refugees are fleeing their war-torn hometowns, the President’s proposed budget slashes relief for those who need it most. The President’s fiscal year 2019 budget proposes cutting foreign assistance — by almost 30 percent compared to current funding — during a time of unprecedented global challenges.
Add your name: Tell Congress that any cuts to lifesaving foreign assistance are unacceptable.
Foreign aid saves millions of lives. It’s also a low-cost investment that helps all Americans by fostering international stability, security and prosperity. We must stand up for our humanitarian values and fight these drastic cuts.
In the coming months, Congress will decide whether to cut foreign aid or show compassion for those in need. It’s up to them to decide whether America will continue to be a global humanitarian leader. The lives of nearly 66 million people in places like Syria, South Sudan and Yemen depend on it.
You can help protect funding that is a lifeline for so many families in need. Sign now and urge your member of Congress to support foreign aid.
