And A Special Message From:
Congresswoman Sara Jacobs
This past year and a half, Borgen Project supporters have worked tirelessly to ensure that U.S. Congress earmarks funding for global COVID-19 relief. We know that we will never truly be able to put an end to the pandemic here at home without fighting COVID-19 on a global scale. We also know that COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on global poverty reduction efforts, pushing up to an additional 150 million people into extreme poverty by the end of the year. This number is the highest it’s been in over 20 years due to the secondary consequences of the pandemic.
At this time, The Borgen Project’s top priority is to raise our voices about global health equity and ensure that U.S. Congress adequately funds the International Affairs Budget. The International Affairs Budget supports critical development and diplomacy programs and specifically helps to fight pandemic and epidemic disease, providing vital assistance to low-income countries.
