On February 13, President Obama released his FY2013 budget, including $56.2 billion for international affairs, demonstrating his strong commitment to supporting development and humanitarian programs that help fight global poverty.

It is critical that we raise our voices to urge Congress to support the International Affairs Budget, which provides vital, lifesaving services, such as food assistance, maternal and child health, and programs that help men and women adapt to a changing climate. 

This budget has a very real impact on the lives of the women and men CARE works with in developing countries, and demonstrating your support will make all the difference.
