‘Unsung Heroes’ Provide Hope For Children In War-Torn CAR

CNN: Why children in Central African Republic should matter to us all
Mia Farrow, UNICEF goodwill ambassador

“…Within Central African Republic, every system has crumbled. Malnutrition and disease stalk children. … Yet in the midst of this grim scenario, there are unsung heroes: Doctors and health workers are risking their lives to save the wounded and the sick. Religious leaders, both Muslim and Christian, are sheltering displaced families regardless of ethnicity or religious preference. … In the face of the enormity of this tragedy, and the many other conflicts around the world, it is understandable that we would feel helpless. However, we should be inspired by the heroism and determination of those frontline humanitarian workers…” (6/30).
