Stay up on what’s coming up with FIA’s handy calendar
NOV 16: International Day for Tolerance
The UN launches a NEW campaign promotes tolerance, respect and dignity across the world. TOGETHER aims to reduce negative perceptions and attitudes towards refugees and migrants, and to strengthen the social contract between host countries and communities and refugees and migrants.
NOV 19: World Toilet Day
If there’s one thing that unites humanity, it’s the call of nature. But 4.5 billion people live without a household toilet that safely disposes of their waste. Human waste spreads deadly diseases, seriously undermining progress in health and child survival. Sanitation is central to better health and eradicating extreme poverty.
Faith for International Assistance (FIA) seeks to strengthen U.S. public support and funding for global health and development assistance through the voice and lens of faith.
We seek a life-affirming world that places human security at its core. Whether it’s maternal/child health, nutrition, clean water, sanitation, agriculture, education, vaccinations, medicine and more, today’s children and families are thriving at a rate unprecedented in history. U.S. funding, influence and leadership helps lead the way to greater human security. Faith-based organizations are vital government partners, and faith leaders and communities are crucial advocates — for aid that works.
