Reporter:
 Good
 morning
 Hungary!
 Today
 we
 have
 with
 us
 Dr.
 Piko
 Anna,
 the
 director
 of
 the
 Hewlett
 Hospital.
 She
 is
 one
 of
 the
 best
 doctors
 in
 Hungary.
 
 Today’s
 conversation
 will
 be
 about
 the
 Eifth
 Millennium
 Development
Goal,
 ensure
 safe
 and
healthy
 motherhood.
 Well
 let
 it
 begin!
 What
 do
 you
 think
 that
 the
 UN
 could
 do
 to
 help
 complete
goal
Eive? Guest:
 Well
 in
 my
 point‐of‐view,
 I
 think
 that
 when
 every
 time
 a
 woman
is
pregnant,
she
 should
 always
have
 clean
 water
and
healthy
 foods,
because
 the
 babies
are
 connected
and
 get
 everything
that
the
 mother
 eats.
 The
 baby
 could
 die
 in
 the
 mother’s
 stomach
 if
 she
 doesn’t
eat
clean
foods. R:
What
is
the
problem
if
there
is
no
baby
or
child
in
the
family? G:
Then
only
the
 lucky
families
can
 be
supported
in
their
older
days.
 But
if
 the
 mother
has
 at
least
one
 child,
 then
 that
child
 can
 support
 the
family
if
it
grows
up
to
be
wealthy. R:
What
do
you
think
are
possible
solutions? G:
Well
 in
my
opinion,
I
think
that
the
 UN
 and
 other
societies
could
 donate
 items
 that
 help
 clean
 the
 water,
 and
 donate
 fresh
 seeds
 for
 growing
crops
that
will
provide
the
mother
with
healthy
food. R:
 That
 was
 nice
 of
 you
 coming
 here
 and
 giving
 us
 your
 opinion.
 Thank
 you
 for
 dropping
 by,
 hope
 you
 have
 a
 great
 day,
 and
 will
 donate
 something
 useful
 items
for
these
poor
mothers.
Have
 a
 great
 day!

an
 acrostic
poem
about

and
 how
people

 need

instead
of

UN
 (United
Nations)

African school

In
Mopti,
Mali
there
lived
a
family
of
Eive.
 There
was
Mon,
the
father,
Marica,
the
mother,
 Ababa
and
Muntazia,
the
smaller
sisters,
and
 Karazianuto,
the
bigger
brother.
At
this
time
of
 the
year
the
village
was
wealthier
than
ever,
and
 the
crops
grew
well. 
 But
one
day
the
sun
was
shining
down
on
 the
villagers
harder
than
before.
The
crops
died
 out,
and
the
rivers
dried
out.
The
Eishermen
 could
get
no
money
because
the
Eish
had
all
died,
 (only
the
rich
had
them
in
aquariums.)
and
the
 farmer’s
crops
were
dead.
Some
starved
to
death.
 Others
went
hunting
by
the
shores
miles
away
 (because
the
animals
from
the
nearby
forest
 needed
water.)
But
everyone
died
before
they
 could
reach
shelter.
They
were
dying
because
of
 the
heat.
No
one
could
resist
it
longer.
The
 children
couldn’t
go
to
school
because
there
was
 no
roof,
so
they
would
boil.
This
went
on
for
two
 years,
and
soon
the
school
was
torn
apart,
to
 make
stronger
sheds
on
houses. 
 A
couple
of
days
later
something
 happened
that
everyone
has
wanted
for
a
very
 long
time.
It
rained.
Mon,
Marica,
Ababa,
 Muntazia,
and
Karazianuto
were
dancing
outside
 in
the
rain.
As
far
as
eyes
can
see,
the
village
 seemed
like
needles
popping
up
everywhere.
The
 whole
village
was
dancing
in
the
rain,
even
the
 old
grandmothers
got
out
of
their
houses,
and
 started
dancing.

The
villagers
went
crazy,
and
 started
jumping,
screaming,
and
some
were
even
 whistling
and
clapping.
By
the
next
few
days,
the
 weather
was
back
to
normal.
The
Eishermen,
and
 the
farmers
were
back
to
work.
Because
of
the
 damages;
the
farmers
needed
to
work
even
 harder. 
 By
the
time
the
school
has
been
built,
 everyone
did
something.
For
example:
Ababa,
 Muntazia,
and
Karazianuto
were
back
in
school,
 learning
what
to
do,
and
how
to
foretell
why
 another
dry
season
may
come.

And
Mon
and
 Marica
were
back
on
the
farm,
working
together.
 Mon
and
Marica
were
so
wealthy,
and
the
 farming
went
so
great,
they
could
afford
 uniforms,
books,
pencils,
erasers,
and
pencil
 cases
for
Ababa,
Muntazia,
and
Karazianuto.
 They
could
also
afford
a
cook,
a
maid,
and
a
 tooter.
(The
tooter
was
for
the
children.)
After
 that,
every
time
before
there
was
a
dry
season,
 kids
ran
around
the
village,
warning
the
villagers
 to
get
ready.
Because
of
this,
the
village
can
now
 get
ready,
and
most
of
all,
they
won’t
be
 surprised
if
something
happens,
that
they
didn’t
 expect
to.

Child with measles


The
Decision Karazianuto,
Muntazia,
and
Ababa
were
walking
home
from
school. Karazianuto,
Muntazia,
and
Ababa:
Hi
Marica!
How
are
you? Muntazia:
Are
there
any
news
that
we
don’t
know
yet? Marica:
Well…
Mon,
do
you
want
to
explain? Mon:
Well
the
fact
is
that
we
don’t
have
enough
money
to
send
you





 










all
to
school
from
now
on.
So
we’ll
just
send
Karazianuto. Muntazia:
But
why? Ababa:
This
year
we
are
even
better
than
Karazianuto.
So
why
can’t
 














one
of
us
girls
go
instead? Mon:
Because
then
Karazianuto
needs
to
learn
more.
 Muntazia
and
Ababa
walk
to
their
room.
In
the
room… Ababa:
We
have
to
do
something
to
show
father
we
are
worthy
 















enough
to
go
to
school. Muntazia:
But
how?
You
know
father
well,
he
believes
that
boys
are
 





















better. Ababa
and
Muntazia
drift
to
sleep,
while
a
stranger
knocks
on
the

door.
Marica
opened
the
door
and… Miss
Roovian:
I
truly
think
that
Ababa
or
Muntazia
should
go
to
 




























school.
There
is
more
future
in
their
lives
than
in
Karazianuto’s. Mon:
Well
if
that’s
the
fact,
I
agree
to
send
one
of
them
to
school
 










instead
of
Karazianuto. The
next
morning
Muntazia
walks
to
school
happily.


Children in school

The
Solution In
many
developing
countries
goal
4
(to
reduce
the
number
of
babies
and
children
who
die)
is
a
big
issue.
 People
all
around
the
world
have
tried
to
help
solve
the
problem.
But
most
of
them
have
failed.
This
paragraph
will
 explain
what
the
real
answer
is.
 
 The
real
solution
is:
The
mother’s
need
clean
water
and
food
if
they
are
pregnant.
That
is
because
the
baby
 is
connected
to
the
mother.
The
solution
for
reducing
the
number
of
children
who
die
is:
The
children
should
get
 clean
food
and
water
until
they
are
old
enough
to
Eight
the
disease.
If
they
don’t
get
ill,
then
they
can
live. 
 By
the
time
they
Eind
the
solution,
they
will
be
in
perfect
condition.

Healthy pregnant women


Share
Responsibility
Song If
you
share
responsibility, The
world
will
keep
us. If
we
try
harder, To
be
kind,
helpful,
and
sharing. The
world
will
keep
us. If
we
kill,
won’t
help
the
others,
and
won’t
share, The
world
will
send
us
away. If
we
try
our
hardest, The
world
will
keep
us. If
we
try
our
hardest, To
be
kind,
helpful,
and
sharing, We
will
never
leave
earth.
