Traditionally, the radio station’s annual “Music for Life” Christmas fundraiser focuses on a “silent disaster”. The theme for 2011 is diarrhoea, together with pneumonia, the leading cause of death for children under the age of five.
Radio Brussel produced this hard-hitting promo video.
The Dutch text reads:
Not every child is lucky enough to become 5 years old
Diarrhoea is the world’s biggest cause of death
for children between 0 and 5 years old.
The Flemish Red Cross produced their own Water for Life video (in Dutch) with pictures from their projects in Nepal. You can see a typical CLTS scene with schoolchildren planting yellow flags to mark spots where open defecation takes place, not only by humans but also by goats!
