Dear Leaders in Congress,
As you consider the next phase of emergency funding to address COVID-19, we urge you to provide at least $12 billion in supplemental funds for the International Affairs Budget to support the global pandemic response. This funding request is critical to strengthening the capacity of developing countries to stop the spread of COVID-19 and to care for those already affected.
We need American leadership to provide a strong international response to this pandemic. The ability of our country to recover from COVID is dependent upon the health of our international community, including those most vulnerable. Critical international funding from Congress will help us respond to the humanitarian impact on the world’s most vulnerable, while also helping to protect health and communities on our shores.
We join Pathfinder International’s call for your support to help the global community survive this crisis and ensure a healthier, more resilient world.
