unicef:

Celebrating nutrition achievements
This might not seem like a big thing but…at the end of the day…its pretty important stuff.

You see…not long ago, it was common for children under the age of 5 to receive treatment for severe malnutrition in this Ethiopian community. 

But now check this out…since UNICEF got involved…over the past three years, malnutrition rates have dropped from 20 per cent to 5 per cent, and severe malnutrition rates have dropped from 5 per cent to about 1 per cent.

Obviously more work needs to be done…but for now…I guess you can say we are impressed with the progress made….we hope you are too.

He (and I shall refer to him in variants of that word) is in his 50s. I won’t describe him. I can. But I won’t. Because he knows who he is. He is a rapist. Not the kind of rapist you hear about on the news- kidnapping, molesting, raping, murdering- not those ones. He belongs…
