After months of threats, the Trump administration has officially moved to cut off aid to Central America’s Northern Triangle—Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Hunger is a primary reason, among others, families from the Northern Triangle are forced to seek asylum in the United States.
Cutting off aid to Central American countries risks exacerbating migration and increasing hunger and malnutrition. Foreign assistance in these areas is critical. Nearly half of Guatemala’s children are chronically malnourished, along with over 20 percent and nearly 15 percent of children in Honduras and El Salvador, respectively.
Tell Congress to protect and increase foreign aid investments in maternal and child nutrition in the Northern Triangle.
Tip: Personalized emails have the most impact. Add a note explaining why hunger is important to you.
