TO THE EDITOR:
The Daily Tar Heel largely focuses on issues local to the universities campus. But what about world issues that are still relevant to the universities campus? 25,000 children die each day because of poverty.
The U.S. should prevent 25,000 children from dying each day, because the U.S. can prevent 25,000 children from dying each day. But beyond the humanitarian imperative, the United States has a strategic interest in improving the plight of the world’s poor.
The Borgen Project is building awareness of the Economic, National Security and Diplomatic reasons for strong U.S. leadership in addressing global poverty. To learn more visit the website, https://borgenproject.org.
I urge Senator Burr and Senator Tillis to co-sponsor the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (S.1730) which seeks to end preventable diseases by 2030.
