UK cuts on water, sanitation and hygiene aid betray international pledges to save lives

Leaked Foreign, Commonwealth &Development Office (FCDO) plans to cut spending on bilateral water, sanitation and hygiene projects by 80% have triggered widespread condemnation. In his blog  #ExitWASH , IRC's John Butterworth warns that "the reduction in bilateral spending - from 150 million GBP to 30 million GBP – turns the UK into an unreliable partner in WASH and extends to tearing up project commitments that have already been made. This is going to cost lives, not save them". 

WaterAid has a page where you can send an email to FCDO Secretary of State Dominic Raab to show your opposition to the 80% cuts to the UK's bilateral aid budget for WASH.
