2007/04/23 - No April 23rd for these children!

According to the UNICEF report on Eliminating Child Poverty which you are reading about first in Yeni Aktüel, the state of children in Turkey is unfortunately not as bright as the celebrations on April 23rd, the 83rd National Sovereignty and Children's Day, should imply. Roughly 5.6 million children under the age of 15 are trapped in poverty; there are 770,000 child labourers and 29 out of 1,000 newborns die before reaching their first birthday.
