Advocate for a more generous Australia
We live in a time when conflict and disasters have for the first time in decades increased the number of people going hungry in the world. 60% of the global population still do not have access to safe, adequate drinking water. An unprecedented 68 million people remain displaced from their homes. Right now it is estimated that there are 40 million people trapped in modern slavery, many producing the goods we take for granted every day.
Despite being one of the wealthiest nations on the planet when measured by median wealth, our foreign aid remains at its lowest level ever as a percentage of Gross National Income (GNI) and is set to keep falling.
If you believe Australia can and should do more for the world’s poorest, there’s so much you can do.
