Bono Fights Against Foreign Aid Budget Cuts

Bono Fights Against Foreign Aid Budget Cuts

The government is finally trying to balance the budget — unfortunately, they├óΓé¼Γäóre trying to cut important foreign aid programs!

Less than 1% of America’s budget goes to foreign aid programs that save millions of lives, and yet on February 19th the House of Representatives voted to cut large portions of money going to foreign aid.

According to Bono’s group, ONE, these cuts will result in “3.7 million people not getting tested for HIV and stop delivery of 10 million malaria bed nets that save child lives.”

Do you part and sign this petition to show your support for maintaining foreign aid to impoverished countries!
