When more than 68.5 million people around the world are displaced from their homes, foreign aid is a necessary and powerful tool to help families survive and rebuild their lives. The lives of millions of people who have fled horrible violence in Guatemala, South Sudan and Yemen depend on this support.
But U.S. investment in foreign aid is at risk. Major cuts to foreign aid budgets have been proposed again and again by the current administration. It will be up to our Congress to decide whether America will continue to be a global humanitarian leader and show compassion for those in need.
Foreign aid not only saves millions of lives, it also helps to build a safer and more stable world for us all. There is too much progress and too many lives at stake to pull back.
Urge your representative to take a stand for lifesaving foreign aid.
