"United Nations statistics show that as many under-fives die each year in Burma as in Sudan. More children in Burma are malnourished than in Somalia and Burma has more orphans than Afghanistan.
Educationally, half of Burma's children fail to progress beyond primary level.
And yet Burma gets aid inflows that are 75 times less than Mozambique and 26 times lower than nearby Cambodia.
So while other countries debate how to deal with Burma's ruling generals in ways that can really bring change, children are going unheard, their needs unmet and their futures uncertain."
For thought? No, I think action.
