CAFOD's Chris Bain at Number 10: Ask the PM to keep our aid promise Geoffrey Young/CAFOD

We know that aid saves and transforms lives.

In the last decade alone, aid has helped put 33 million more children in the classroom, and 10 times as many people can now access treatment for HIV. But this vital support for the world’s poorest communities is under attack.

Send a message to the PM to ask him to keep the aid promise.

In a leaked letter to The Times this week, Defence Secretary Dr Liam Fox challenged the UK government’s commitment to increase aid spending to 0.7% GNI by 2013. Read CAFOD’s response.

It’s a critical time to tell the Government how we feel about tackling global poverty. No. 10 has issued a statement saying that they are ‘fully committed’ to keeping their aid promise.

So please send a message to David Cameron supporting this commitment, and urge him to lead his Government to turn their promise into law. Let’s show him how vital it is that money reaches the poorest communities.

Take action now: Email the Prime Minister.
