Below is an email we sent our supporters asking them to thank the White House and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew for their call for debt relief for Ebola-stricken West Africa. Please join us in thanking Secretary Lew and add your voice to those calling for debt relief and economic policies that protect vulnerable communities.
$100 million in debt relief for the poorest countries affected by Ebola!
This Thanksgiving, that's what your support is winning for some of the world's poorest countries: a needed investment in the health infrastructure of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
In recent months Jubilee USA continually met with the White House urging cancellation of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia's debts. In October, more than 130 Jubilee USA synagogues, churches and mosques acted and prayed for the White House to support this campaign. We showed the White House that we could use a special trust fund at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to move quick debt relief for the Ebola countries.
