"Evangelicals and the Case for Foreign Aid"

Americans think 25% of federal dollars go to aid. It’s really about 1%.

So writes Rich Stearns, president of World Vision USA, in the Wall Street Journal opinion piece “Evangelicals and the Case for Foreign Aid.” 

In his article, Stearns stresses the necessary role of US-funded foreign assistance to transform lives. Emphasizing the impact of programs like PEPFAR, the US Malaria Initiative and Feed the Future, Stearns makes the case that the 1 percent of the federal budget devoted to foreign aid and development cannot afford to be cut further – despite these tough economic times.

Each of us has a role to play in helping the world’s most vulnerable. For questions about Women of Vision’s Advocacy efforts and how you can be involved, please contact WOV Advocacy intern Christina Bradic.
