EU aid works. Between 2004 and 2009, it helped enroll more than 9 million children in primary education, vaccinate 5.5 million children against measles, and connect more than 31 million people to clean water.
But this lifesaving work is now under threat.
Europe’s leaders are in the midst of crucial budget negotiations and some leaders are proposing cuts to these lifesaving programs. This would have a devastating impact on the world’s poorest.
Don’t let this happen. Be a lifesaver of the century.
During your negotiations on the next seven year EU budget please agree to the level of international aid proposed in 2011, to ensure the EU continues to build on the amazing progress it has achieved in the fight against extreme poverty.
