Lifesaving Foreign Assistance is #WorthThePenny
Description: The President has proposed a budget to slash lifesaving U.S. foreign assistance. This funding has long been a key pillar in our nation's leadership role in saving lives and bringing about a safer, more prosperous and more equitable world. Slashing these programs – which make up just one percent of the U.S. federal budget, or one penny on the dollar – wouldn’t balance the budget or pay for significant new domestic spending. But it would have a disastrous impact on the lives of millions of women, girls and families worldwide. It's not too late to reverse course. This proposal does not have to become law. Only Congress has the power to protect these lifesaving programs. But they won't act unless they hear from you. Tell Congress today: Foreign assistance is #WorthThePenny. Don't put this lifesaving aid on the chopping block. Go to http://www.care.org to sign the petition.

Malnutrition Emergency in Northeastern Nigeria
Description: Across Borno state, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is running 11 permanent health facilities, while its medical teams make regular visits to five more health facilities. MSF is deeply concerned for the hundreds of thousands of people who could be living in areas of the state where aid agencies have not been granted access and who may not have food, water or medical care. MSF's pediatric and nutrition advisor, Dr. Kerstin Hanson, said: "When I go to the field, I'm used to being surrounded by a lot of kids. Bubbly, jumping, laughing. In Borno this is not the case, especially in the displacement camps where the kids, especially the children under five, were missing. Most of them had, unfortunately, already died. On the other hand, however, in our hospital for severely, acutely malnourished children with really severe medical complications, here the number of malnourished kids was alarming. They were of a severity that I had not recently seen in any of the projects that I've visited." Read more about this crisis: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/country-region/nigeria
