BEYOND THE SUGAR CANE FIELD: UNICEF in Asia

Louisa Shotwell, author of Roosevelt Grady, has written a brief, sympathetic overview of UNICEF's work in India, Thailand, and Indonesia. The three countries have many similarities, not the least of which is that four-fifths of their population live in villages. The major problem faced by UNICEF is reaching the people. How it goes about this task is shown here in prototypical vignettes: in India, alnutrition is the enemy; in Thailand, it is UNICEF's work with crippled children; in Indonesia, they employ preventive medicine against blindness in children. For younger readers, the examples the examples have strong identification factors.
