Dear Prime Minister Harper:

As you consider your choices for the 2014 budget, please do not cut vital foreign aid funding that supports childhood vaccinations, promotes healthy newborns and mothers and helps lift millions out of poverty. The world expects Canada to lead, and so do we.


Please complete the highlighted fields.




2.5
billion people

are struggling to survive
on less than
$2
a day

Canada’s foreign aid plays a critical role in saving lives

and helping millions of people build a

better future for themselves and their families.

But Canada’s
commitment is
in doubt.

Last year, $370 million was cut from Canada’s

aid budget, including $290 million in unspent

aid money that was returned to the Treasury.

 

This money was meant to support foreign aid efforts and

could have made an impact in the lives of millions of people

living in poverty, but instead went back to government coffers.

More cuts to programs

that fight global poverty

won’t eliminate the deficit.

But they will tarnish Canada’s reputation and

reduce our country’s impact in ending the

injustice of extreme poverty.

The Government is meeting

right now to decide the fate

of the aid budget.

That’s why we urgently need you to raise

your voice in defence of the aid budget.
