Take a moment today to read Nicholas Kristof’s thoughtful op-ed “Would You Let This Girl Drown?” Kristof zeroes in on several very important facts. He asks a poignant, hypothetical question: “If G-8 leaders would be willing to save one drowning child, why are they collectively so far behind in meeting humanitarian aid pledges to save other children?”
Kristof’s analysis of that question raises more questions for all who are working to help provide humanitarian aid for millions of children around the world. How can we effectively get the message out? What steps can we take to make sure world leaders and average citizens of the world understand the simple, cost-effective solutions to combat infant mortality or child survival? I’d love to know what you think.
