This month, Belgian radio station Studio Brussel is partnering with the Red Cross to raise money for WASH projects in Nepal.
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!
