Worldwide, hunger and extreme poverty — defined as living on less than $1.90 a day — have been cut in half since 1990. Building on this momentum, the world has set a goal to end hunger and poverty by 2030.
U.S. foreign aid has contributed to this dramatic progress for less than 1 cent of every dollar in the federal budget. To help achieve the goal of ending hunger and poverty by 2030, our country needs a budget that doesn’t cut foreign aid.
Cuts to international hunger and poverty programs will be especially detrimental for people living in Africa. Right now, 30 million people are experiencing alarming hunger across northern Nigeria, Yemen, and several East African countries.
Malnutrition is having a disastrous impact and as ever, children are among the worst affected. U.S. foreign aid, which represents less than 1 percent of the federal budget, means the difference between life and death for millions of people.
Without a budget that addresses global hunger and helps reduce the risk of starvation, we will be pushed further away from ending hunger worldwide by 2030.
