Goodwill Ambassador Shakira Visits Cyclone-Affected Bangladesh
Kuli: You are watching UNICEF television.
A community struggles to rebuild after the cyclone shattered their lives and homes. In this village of some 80 families, almost every family suffered a lost of a loved one. Witnessing the devastation first hand is UNICEF’s goodwill ambassador and international super star Shakira. This young couple told Shakira that they had lost two of their children and this old woman fought her ordeal of surviving by climbing on top of a tree.
To attend the needs of children affected by the cyclone, UNICEF has setup more than 60 safe heavens like this. Children including many orphans like 11 year old Nipa are looked after and are given opportunities to play and learn. More centers will be established in the coming weeks to provide social support to 20,000 children. At this primary school is heavily damaged by the cyclone; students welcome their guest with a folk song.
Shakira: School is always an oasis in the middle of any tragedy, school goes beyond education is the space where kids can grow in a healthy environment, away from the troubles for at least a few hours and they can be--they can be children again.
Kuli: These women and children are waiting to receive family kits that contain essential items such as clothing and utensils to help them carry on with their lives. Blankets and sweaters are also given to shield women and children from the approaching winter chill. In Patuakhali Bangladesh, this is Kuli reporting for UNICEF television, unite for children.
