Our #LeaveNoOneBehind campaign this month focuses on the impact that income inequality has on the communities impacted most by COVID-19. In the fight against this pandemic, we need Canada to support a global and equitable response by investing in the strengthening of vulnerable communities.
Ask #1: Canada to invest at least 1% of its COVID-19 response in new and additional aid towards a global response.
Ask #2: Canada must commit to a permanent increase in Canadian aid (ODA - Official Development Assistance) to ensure progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ending extreme poverty.
Use social media to highlight the need for Canada to invest at least 1% of its COVID-19 response for a global response, and a permanent increase to Canadian aid (ODA – Official Development Assistance). Use this month’s theme of income inequality to highlight how COVID-19 threatens to widen the gap between the rich and the poor. Demonstrate with specific examples like school closures that have impacted around 90% of students worldwide (1.57 billion), and how an estimated 370 million children are not getting the school meals they depend on as a result. Explain why Canada needs to do more to increase progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help create a more equitable, just and prosperous world for all.
