Help save the aid that saves lives

It’s simple. A tiny fraction of our nation’s budget – just 1% -- saves millions of lives and does a world of good. It pays for childhood vaccines, access to clean water, food and shelter for refugees, and skilled response to disasters in some of the world’s poorest countries.

The Administration’s proposed cuts would mean devastation. At a time when 65 million people are displaced, famine is declared in South Sudan, and three other countries are on the brink, foreign aid is needed more than ever.

Foreign aid is a small part of the federal budget that pays big dividends. It provides nearly 11.5 million people in impoverished countries with lifesaving HIV treatment. During the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, this aid helped millions and prevented the deadly virus from spreading further. And it helps keep America safe by addressing the poverty and chaos that are the breeding grounds for terrorism.

As Catholics, we are called to protect the life and dignity of those most in need. Helping people reflects our Catholic and American values. Morally, it’s the right thing to do. We must speak out and shape our government’s responses to foster the common good of all. Sign our petition now.
