Interview with one of the U.N’s Ambassadors A‐ Ambassador R‐ Reporter R‐ Hello and welcome! We are about to meet one of the United Nations’ ambassadors. R‐ Hello Mr. Ambassador. A‐ Hello R‐ Why did you think that sharing responsibility for making the world a better place was important? A‐ Well, making the world a better place is crucial and the only way we can accomplish it is to work together. I feel that the things that are happening today shouldn’t have to be. It’s everyone’s fault and it’s not you or I alone who can make a difference, it’s everyone! Everyone should help out because it’s our responsibility. R‐ I see, so you’re saying that if everyone would work together we would achieve this goal?
A‐Yes, but it will take years. It is a big problem but by 2015 we are hoping it will come to a stage that is sustainable. R‐ Thank you, Mr. Ambassador and thank you all for listening. Good‐ bye.
Marlai’s Luck Once in a small village in Zimbabwe, Africa, there lived a family. A mother Marlaia, a girl Lanka and a grandpa Bambai. Marlaia had long black hair She was neither tall nor short; she was medium- dized. She had dark skin and black eyes. She ‘spoke’ Shona and was very talkative. Her daughter Lanka on the other hand was shy even with her mother. Bambai didn’t speak that much, he was a man of actions. One day when Marlaia was at the end of her pregnancy, Larka and Marlaia decided it would take them two days so they better start walking to the hospital now. Bambai waved his stick and they were off. Everything was going fine until Marlai started feeling dizzy and fell down and couldn’t stand up. Lanka ran around crying for help but everyone was too weak from hunger. Lanka, worried about her mother and walked around the whole village trying to get help. Then she spotted a Mobile Clinic. She shouted, “Come quickly, my mom needs help!” The mobile truck came roaring and took her and her mother to the hospital. Then they found out that the medication cost money. “Well we don’t have that much!” Lanka cried “We’ll pay you back in two weeks but right now help my mother” “O.K two weeks” the doctor said. Marlai and Lanka returned home with a new baby boy. Bambai held it gently because it was asleep. The next day they found an envelope addressed to them. Marlai tore open the envelope happy to take a rest from her work. Since she couldn’t read, she took it to the local teacher who read it out loud. It said, Dear Marlai, We are happy to announce that we have saved money for your treatment .Please keep the extra money for food. Mr. William “I’m astonished! Can this be true?” Than Bambai said “What’s the baby’s name?” “Bambai Williams Rona.”
Babies and Kids Dying babies all over the world A preventable problem if people would help out Join an organization or donate money medicine Give money for their vaccines or bed nets But if you can’t do any of this then Be thankful to your belongings And fewer tears will be shed
My Dream As many of us know, education is expensive. Many kids, just like, me are held back from learning. As much as my parents try to earn enough money, they barely have enough for food. My passion for learning is very strong. As I watch the kids in my village who are able to attend school I wish I could be one of them! Oh, how I wish I could be one of them. Oh, how I wish I could wear that uniform and write on a slate! In my heart I believe one day each and every child will be able to attend school. When the word first got around that the United Nations had made my dream one of their goals, I felt there still was a chance that my dream will come true. When I get older, I will help fight this problem so my children and grandchildren won’t have to look on as other kids go to school. They will be able to go themselves.
Important information about diseases. HIV, AIDS, Malaria and other diseases are killing millions of people. Every minute someone dies of AIDS. People are dying right now. This must be stopped! These things would not be happening if people were educated and taught how to stay away from diseases. If people knew to cover their beds when falling asleep than they could stay away from Malaria. To help all there is to do is donate bed nets or mother. If everyone helped out there would be fewer people dying and more smiles on faces.
