“Every child is a Fairy deserving an enchanted childhood, my picture shocks even me, yet this is reality and is happening now in the 21st century. Please take a moment to take in such horror and allow your conscience to stop this happening. A regular donation to Save the Children will help to ease the pain and suffering of children, the fairies of our world.”
The UN are meeting on 25 September 2008 to discuss the goals they set to tackle poverty. We want them to 'get on track' with their goal to cut child deaths by two-thirds by 2015. Progress on this goal has been slow – 10 million children still die every year, mostly from preventable causes. That's appalling.
We want you to join tens of thousands of people around the world who are demanding that the UN uses this meeting to 'get on track' to stop millions of child deaths. At the current rate the goal won't be met until 2045. That's an unacceptable 30 years late!
Add your voice by sending a message to the UK's Ambassador to the UN, urging him to make sure the September meeting results in concrete actions to cut child deaths, not more missed opportunities.
