Contact your members of Congress (800-826-3688), and tell them you support robust funding for poverty-focused development assistance programs in all upcoming budget and appropriations negotiations. Recently, President Obama released his budget for fiscal year 2015.
While he recommends increasing international development assistance accounts and other vital programs, some reductions in funding for life-saving global health and humanitarian assistance accounts were proposed.
We must ensure that Congress enacts higher funding allocations for these accounts in FY 2015.
