For a change, there’s good news coming out of Washington, D.C. this week. The Senate and House passed the PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act of 2013, extending the lifesaving legislation that has helped tens of millions of people affected by HIV around the world. Your phone calls and emails to legislators played a significant role in ensuring that this legislation passed as quickly and smoothly as it did. For more information, please read our press release.
While we are celebrating this life-affirming success, we cannot forget about our brothers and sisters in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan. We urge you to take two actions: support CRS’ efforts to help the survivors with a donation; and raise your voice with members of Congress to multiply your gift with sustained U.S. poverty-focused disaster assistance for recovery and rebuilding efforts.
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we want to thank you for your continued action to confront global poverty. This Thanksgiving, we share this Thanksgiving prayer with you and your loved ones.
