People Who Help Us Day
On ‘People who Help Us’ day the children will meet lots of different professionals. Policemen, traffic wardens, cooks, vicars. They may meet a Health Worker and be told that this is the person who is always there to help Mum when babies are tiny. They are there just in case, to make sure that everything is OK.
Sadly in Africa there are children dying because there are not enough Health Workers to make sure that things don’t go wrong and lots of things do. Things like no water, no real hygienic spaces and miles of walking. We CAN help!
These 100 words are my contribution to the blogging community’s response to the Save the Children campaign. At the UN on Tuesday 20th September Chris Mosler will be adding her voice to those thousands who have signed the petition to pressure David Cameron and other world leaders to reverse this dreadful situation and provide the funds to get the Health Workers in those areas that desperately need it. You can HELP!
ACTION LIST (from @michelletwinmum)
- So first off – Let’s all sign the petition, 30 seconds work and a step closer.
- Then the challenge set by @HelloItsGemma is that we want (need) to see 100 posts of 100 words linked up here by Tuesday. If 100 bloggers each write a post about this and encourage more signatures that could make a massive dent in the 20,000 signature shortfall that we sit with right now!
- Write your 100 words about a great health professional you have encountered in your life. Add a link to the petition and either link or add in some information from Save the Children about the #Healthworkers campaign
- Link to a number of other bloggers/ vloggers and ask them to do the same
- Tweet about this, facebook mention it, remark on google plus, talk to your Mum on the phone, whatever you can do to spread this to just a few more people, please do it.
