U.K. Foreign Aid Reduction Will Harm Children Worldwide, U.K. Pediatricians, Experts, Advocates Say

Joining a chorus of voices opposing the reduction of overseas aid funding from 0.7% to 0.5% of Britain’s gross national income, the RCPCH said the evidence was overwhelming that aid helped children’s health and any reduction would have far-reaching consequences…” (Siddique, 12/12).
