THE STORY:

The sequester has many people nervous for several reasons, and the future of foreign aid is one of them. Less than 1 percent of the US federal budget goes to improving global health, an investment that results in changing the lives of hundreds of thousands every year. Currently, foreign assistance is scheduled to be decreased by 5.3 percent in the coming year and an additional cut of $50 billion over the next ten years.

Foreign assistance serves many purposes; it helps keep America safe by stabilizing areas of possible conflict and eliminating the root causes of terrorism while strategic aid provides American job security. Not to mention the positive effects that aid programs have, fighting hunger and poverty, building schools, and improving the quality of life for millions of people around the world.

It costs about $2,000 to send Clint Borgen on an advocacy trip to Washington D.C. where he has over 70 meetings in 4 days. It's an effective and cheap way to keep our leaders informed about the state of global aid and obtain co-sponsors for important legislative bills such as the Water for the World Act. Help me send Clint to Washington this year!
