The upcoming election could go either way - and politicians across the spectrum know it. Right now, political parties are locking in their policy platforms, carefully monitoring public sentiment on key issues. We’ve got a way to make Australian aid one of those issues - an election pledge that demonstrates thousands of voters support a powerful aid program, and they’ll be voting for it.
Australia’s current aid program is failing our global responsibilities and our closest neighbours. Aid funding is nearly at its lowest point ever. Since 2013, over $11 billion has been cut - cuts which have caused life-saving programs to be shut down for good. It’s simple: people suffer when aid is cut.
Australian aid saves lives.
