UN website: With only five years left untill the 2015 deadline to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called on world leaders to attend a summit in New York on 20-22 September 2010 to accelerate progress towards the MDGs.
We, people of the city of Breda, the Netherlands, organised a big gathering 4 September 2010 to support MDG no. 5: to reduce Maternal Mortality. Over 100 pregnant women came to help public health organisation Simavi kick off the Worldmothers Estafette.
Fine art photographer MeRy (Melanie Rijkers) created the record of biggest group 'bolle buiken' (big bellies) in one photo, and the Estafette to get people to sign a petition was launched successfully.
