Susan Barnett, founder of Faiths for Safe Water

“Bill Gates recently testified [before the Senate State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee] that one of his biggest global fears is a massive pandemic. … [W]e can’t forget that building up health infrastructures around the world is … in America’s best interest. … [N]ow is the time for Congress to strengthen foreign aid. U.S. foreign aid funding leverages billions of dollars in private funds, provides a strong return on its small investment, and saves millions of lives. … It’s time to not rollback progress but build on the great gains made in global heath…” (4/9).
