Do you realize…
…a BILLION people around the world live on less that ONE dollar a day?
…more than 38 million people around the world are infected by HIV/AIDS? 25 million of them are in Africa alone.
…Increasing international assistance by an amount equal to just ONE percent of the U.S. budget will:
- Prevent 10 million children from becoming AIDS orphans
- Help get 104 million children into grade school
- Provide water to almost 900 million people around the globe.
- Save almost 6.5 million children under 5 from preventable deaths
- Build a better, safer world for all.
