Defend EU aid: social media toolkit

EU development and humanitarian aid is under threat. As the European Parliament and EU Member States negotiate the bloc's 2017 budget, big cuts are being proposed to the budget lines intended to help lift the world's poorest people out of poverty. 

DON'T CUT EU AID

A strong EU development cooperation budget can help developing countries – and the international community – end extreme poverty by 2030, and is critical to the EU’s continued leadership and credibility in shaping sustainable development policy.

Join us in calling for EU Member States to support a robust external aid budget dedicated to reducing poverty and inequality.
