PETITION
INFLUENTIAL LEADERS! URGE CONGRESS TO SUPPORT THE USAID NTD PROGRAM AS WE CELEBRATE ITS 10th ANNIVERSARY AT:
"IT'S NOT JUST THAT THESE WERE IMPORTANT PROBLEMS TOUCHING LARGE NUMBERS OF CHILDREN. THERE ARE PLENTY OF IMPORTANT PROBLEMS FACING THE WORLD'S CHILDREN.
THE POINT IS THAT THESE WERE PROBLEMS FOR WHICH SOLUTIONS WERE AVAILABLE AND AFFORDABLE
- SO MUCH SO THAT IS WAS UNCONSCIONABLE NOT TO PUT THEM INTO ACTION, NOT TO DO WHAT IT WAS NOW SO OBVIOUSLY POSSIBLE TO DO.
MORALITY MUST MARCH WITH CAPACITY
