Tell Your Senators to Oppose Funding Cuts to Child Survival Programs
Meet six-month-old baby Exodus, who survived malaria. He recovered thanks to the quick treatment by staff at Save the Children’s mobile health clinic in Uganda. The U.S. has been a global leader in helping to save the lives of children from illnesses like pneumonia, malaria and diarrhea. Since 1990, American international aid helped reduce deaths of children worldwide by half.
But now, these programs that have helped millions are in jeopardy. Congress is considering President Trump’s budget proposal, which makes devastating cuts to the foreign assistance budget. Drastic cuts to successful programs would reverse all the good that America has done to build stronger communities and save lives around the world.
We should preserve America’s legacy of helping children around the world survive and thrive. Urge your senators to sign on to a bipartisan letter calling for robust funding for child and maternal survival programs.
