November 21, 2014 (WASHINGTON) – This statement is delivered on behalf of the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network (MFAN) by Co-Chairs George Ingram, Carolyn Miles, and Connie Veillette
MFAN is pleased to welcome David Ray, Vice President for Policy & Advocacy for CARE USA and Managing Director of CARE Action Now, as the newest member of the Executive Committee. Ray brings with him more than 25 years of advocacy, constituency building and campaigning experience, including 19 at CARE alone, which will be a huge asset to the committee.
CARE has expressed strong support for MFAN’s reform agenda and a commitment to adding their experience and expertise to our network. CARE’s work spans the globe, and the organization worked in 90 countries in 2014. We look forward to CARE’s contributions as we continue to push for greater accountability and country ownership to make U.S. foreign assistance more effective in helping developing countries access a path to prosperity.
