Urgent steps needed to save world’s poor children dying of neglect

World should take immediate steps to save the poorest children dying of neglect and failed government policies.

Reports suggest that deaths of about four million children from poorest backgrounds in the last ten years could have been prevented. Something must be done urgently as it is a sin to watch the poor children suffer day after day.

World citizens should be ashamed that it on 2011 there is a huge divide between children from rich and poor families and that access to healthcare is denied. Reports indicate that to meet the prevention of child mortality goals, many governments end up saving children from comparatively well-off families while neglecting the poorest of the poor.

We need to create a strong political will and become serious in tackling mortality rates among poor children. Governments should put poorest and vulnerable children at the center of their policy machines because they have higher needs.

Religions also should not remain silent spectators and should become active partners in helping world’s poorest children as religion told us to help the helpless.
