SAVE THE CHILDREN REACTION TO PM'S SPEECH ON FOREIGN AID
 

Monday, 27 March 2017 - 1:15pm

Kevin Watkins, CEO of Save the Children, said:

“The Prime Minister is absolutely right - Britain cannot and should not turn its back on people in need. We made a promise to the world's poorest people, and because of the UK's aid commitment, we are keeping this promise. It is a promise that is saving lives, extending opportunities for education and combating the disadvantages faced by girls and women.

“The extraordinary response to the East Africa food crisis, and the money raised by Comic Relief last Friday are testament to the generosity of the British public. 

“All around the world, British aid workers risk their lives every day to help millions of children survive and thrive. We should honour their efforts.”
