“He who sustains a human being is as though he sustains the whole world.” – The Talmud
One of the most encouraging evidences of progress in international morality has been the willingness of nations to share skills and resources with other peoples. Because of our concern for human welfare throughout the world, we hail the United States program of economic and technical assistance (Point 4), the Colombo Plan and the United Nations Technical Assistance Program, which help underdeveloped countries in their struggle to overcome ignorance, disease and poverty which can lead to unrest and political instability. The Technical Assistance Program also helps to develop the natural and human resources of a country. We consider these programs of economic and technical aid to be imperative for the maintenance of peace, the furtherance of the democratic ideal, the strengthening of the free world and a potent weapon against Communist penetration.
We urge our government to support an adequate program of aid to underdeveloped countries and to increase coordination with the United Nations Technical Assistance Program. When granting aid unilaterally, we strongly urge that our government make the grant without military commitments.
Because of our concern for human welfare throughout the world, the U.S. is to be commended for its willingness to share its skills and resources with other peoples.
We urge our government to support an adequate program of aid to developing nations and increased coordination with the U.N. Technical Assistance programs.
