Mosquitos are the biggest people killers in the animal kingdom, with more deaths than all other creatures combined. Primates are the second largest by the way.
There was a documentary on the difficulty in getting drugs/vaccines/medicines to far away, hard to reach, inhospitable poor places where people were dying, and governments had no money.
In one scene, in Africa, the problem of money, logistics, distribution and transportation had seemed to have been overcome…
Was that a coke being consumed, deep in a jungle?
It seems that in their desperation to share their wonderful products, at a profit of course, no expense was spared in reaching the inner-most sanctums of human habitation.
Message to Coca-cola.
“If you ever find a spare few bucks and would like some real humanitarian publicity (and incidentally save a lot of lives), have a word/team up with a few governments/pharmaceuticals, and save a little space for some medicines on board those ships, planes and trucks that so welcomely manage to reach so many nooks and crannies around the poor places on earth. Of course, you could ignore this and wait for a huge, public petition to shame you into doing something, or explain why it really isn’t possible.”
If coca cola can do it, and as they clearly do, then medicines can reach them the same way. Is it perhaps a problem of priorities? Coke vs medicine. Profit versus humanitarianism. Taste vs life.
Anyone fancy sending a letter or starting a campaign?
