Washington, D.C. – President Trump announced the release of $639 million in humanitarian aid at the G20 Summit today.
This statement can be attributed to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World:
“We welcome President Trump’s attention to the global humanitarian crisis, but he was announcing aid that Congress approved months ago and that his administration has delayed. Twenty million people in famine countries are at risk of starvation, so the delay has been inexcusable.
“The administration is pushing to cut all foreign assistance by more than one third, including drastic cuts to food aid and disaster assistance.”
“We urge President Trump to provide real leadership for the international response to this year’s outbreak of famine and to continue U.S. support of the world’s overall progress toward the end of hunger and extreme poverty.”
“We thank members of Congress from both parties for increasing humanitarian aid in the FY 2017 budget despite the President’s call for reduced funding.”
Climate Change Worsens Hunger in Latino/a Communities
Climate change threatens the traditions and lifestyles of Indigenous people.
While climate change impacts everyone, regardless of race, policies and practices around climate have historically discriminated against and excluded people of color.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.
The Bible on...
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
