Interview with Roger Foster Good
morning
 ladies
and
gentlemen.
 Roger
Jones
interviewed
 Daniel
Foster
from
the
 UN
(united
nations)
to
 ask
questions
about
 education
problems
in
 developing
countries. Roger:
Why
is
 education
such
a
big
 issue? Daniel:
Well
one
reason
 is
that
families
don’t
 have
enough
money
to
 be
fed
so
kids
have
to
go
 to
work
instead
of
 school.
Another
reason
 is
that
families
with
no
 education
don’t
use
 their
money
wisely
and
 they
don’t
use
it
on
 education.
The
third
 reason
is
that
girls
are
 not
treaded
as
good
as
 boys
so
many
girls
don’t
 go
to
school.
Also
 schools
are
too
far
away


for
kids
to
walk
in
many
 villages. Roger:
What
is
the
 target
that
the
UN
wants
 to
meet.
 Daniel:
The
target
is
to
 ensure
that
boys
and
 girls
will
be
able
to
 complete
a
full
course
of
 primary
schooling
by
 2015. Roger:
Where
is
the
 world
in
achieving
this
 goal? Daniel:
Many
countries
 are
really
close
for
 example
in
1990
there
 was
140
million
kids
out
 of
school
and
in
2005
 there
was
only
72
 million.
But
in
countries
 like
sub‐Sahara
Africa
 there
were
33
million
 kids
out
of
school
 (2005).
Of
course
there
 are
some
other
 countries
doing
as
bad
 as
sub‐Sahara. Roger:

So
thank
you
 Daniel
for
coming
and
 we
will
have
to
end
now

The Article About Dying Babies and Moms In developing countries many kids and adults don't know there is something like vaccines. Because of that and dirty water 1.8 million kids die every year from diarrhea. Child mortality is a really big problem in developing countries and that is why the fourth millennium development goal was created. If all the people would have enough money for medicines they would be able to live longer but people in developing countries don't. Because of that and illnesses 20% of the children in Burkina Faso die before the age of five. Half of the children who die before the age of die from one of these illnesses: AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), diarrhea, malaria, measles and pneumonia. More ten million children die before the age of five.

Many of you have or had a mom when you were (are) a kid. More then half of a million women die when pregnancy (mostly in developing countries.) For example in Ethiopia one out of 14 women die when pregnancy or giving birth and in the UK one out of 5,800 women die. Developing countries have a big problem with health care for pregnant women and women giving birth. Mostly the developing countries just don’t have enough money for pregnant women or use the money in different reasons. For example Sierra Leone spends $14 on health care for each person while the USA spends 5,711 for each person, a year. If more people would help maybe Sierra Leone would spend at least $500. for each person a year.

Many of these illnesses could be prevented by clean water, sanitation, healthy food, and health. If everyone would work together then everyone could live a happier life.

These pictures show a grave of a baby a pregnant in a developing countries and a girl from India.

The Letter to The AIDS Med co. 4101
Ula
Street New
Delhi
Hospital April
10,
2009 Mr.
Angelo,
AIDS
Med
manager Box
123 New
York,
NY USA Dear
Mr.
Angelo I
think
that
the
high
prices
you
give
are
too
high.
I’m
a
doctoring
India
and
many
people
in
my
 hospital
suffer
from
AIDS.
My
hospital
can’t
afford
the
medicines.
If
you
would
lower
the
prices
 then
many
people
suffer
from
HIV/AIDS.
There
are
40
million
people
with
AIDS.
Many
of
them
 would
never
have
enough
money
to
buy
one
box
of
the
medicines.
If
you
lower
your
prices
in
 developing
countries
then
many
people
might
see
their
children’s
children. Sincerely,

 Dr.
Baranski

Dear
people
in
the
USA
government:
 
 My
name
is
Mikolaj
Baranski.
I’m
writing
to
you
because
I
think
it’s
unfair
what
 you
are
doing.
You
have
promised
to
give
0.7%
of
your
income
and
you
are
giving
 only
0.16! 
 Many
people
in
the
USA
have
clean
water.
Maybe
if
you
would
pay
what
you
 promised
then
people
in
extreme
Poverty
would
at
least
have
clean
water.
Imagine
 that
your
children
would
be
in
poverty
and
even
because
of
drinking
water
they
 might
get
sick
or
die.
They
also
might
die
because
of
starvation. 
 If
you
would
help,
many
people
wouldn’t
feel
like
that.
I
think
you
should
keep
 your
promises
you
made.
 Sincerely,
 Mikolaj
