His Excellency Javier Perez de Cuellar
5th Secretary General of the United Nations
The regional director of health, Percy Zela Campos said that the death of the infants doesn't happen due to simple health questions. "The children who die are from a very poor socioeconomic situation, and this is a big influence."
Here's another one from Zela Campos, and you'll note I'm linking the original quotes here; "..The Ministry of Health supports us with medicines.......the problem is that our stocks run out at this time of year (the Andean winter)."
And then there's this report that has President Alan García asking for "....the solidarity of his compatriots to offer help to the residents of the regions in the South of the country." The only problem with this is that this quote is from winter 2007 when another 50 children died from exactly the same thing.
Is it just me, or do you think there's something totally fucked up with this picture, too?
