Non sono solo numeri…
Preferisco le parole ai numeri. Ma certe volte i numeri servono più delle parole.
Over 24,000 children die every day around the world. That is equivalent to:
1 child dying every 3.6 seconds
16-17 children dying every minute
A 2010 Haiti earthquake occurring almost every 9-10 days
A 2004 Asian Tsunami occurring almost every 10 days
An Iraq-scale death toll every 16–40 days
Just under 9 million children dying every year
Some 79 million children dying between 2000 and 2007
The silent killers are poverty, hunger, easily preventable diseases and illnesses, and other related causes. In spite of the scale of this daily/ongoing catastrophe, it rarely manages to achieve, much less sustain, prime-time, headline coverage.
