This is a chilling message from Sue Desmond-Hellmann, the CEO of Gates Foundation. Donald Trump’s stated budget proposal greatly favors the defense and other forms of incentives for the veterans; however, the funding for energy, transportation facilities, improved agriculture, and the environment has been reduced.
Achievements by the Gates Foundation so far
If sanctioned, the budget will eventually make the world “less prosperous and less safe”, stated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation showing deep concern. The CEO of the Foundation Sue Desmond said,
“We are deeply troubled that the budget proposal disproportionately affects the poorest people, abroad and at home.”
The CEO also mentioned the enormous advancements shown by the public health organizations. Which have successfully managed to suppress the growth of infectious diseases and poverty.
Moreover, extensive research has given birth to improved medications that have saved the lives of 122 million children over the past 25 years.
Possible outcomes of the budget
Sue Hellmann continued,
“Foreign aid, and investments in research and development has played a vital role in achieving this progress,”
Educating everyone and empowering them to live healthy lifestyles can only help in building better societies for a living, while also bolstering the national security of a state. Lowering funds that provide services to the public will make basic needs such as water and electricity more expensive for the rest.
