“It guts me when Trump talks about cutting aid," Marcus Mumford tells Hozier on the fifth episode of the Cry Power podcast. "I like the global and the local — they’re not mutually exclusive.”

International aid is crucial in the fight to end extreme poverty and keep the world's most vulnerable children in school. There are 75 million kids who risk missing out on an education because of conflict, natural disasters, or other crises, but the richest countries can use their aid budgets to help. Sign the Global Citizen petition now to call on world leaders to step up.
