A deadly lack of safe water in Somalia I UNICEF
Description: In 2011 famine was declared in Somalia. Now, in 2017, famine once again is looming over the drought-struck country. Not only are children suffering from malnutrition but this has resulted in an outbreak of cholera and acute diarrhea. As of today, 22,000 cases have been reported and Baidoa, Somalia, is one of the epicentres. There is no clean water for drinking or sanitation, which means diseases can quickly spread. We’re on the ground delivering life-saving supplies, support and helping nurses like Amina boost morale of the patients. Together with partners we’re aiming to reach 1.5 million people with clean water and sanitation services in 2017.

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.
