Protect Children’s Health by Ending Deforestation

Target: Say Samal, Minister of Environment, Cambodia

Goal: End deforestation in Cambodia to better protect the health of the nation’s young children.

Toddlers and children in Cambodia are suffering from dangerous respiratory infections, fevers, and diarrhea, all linked to rampant deforestation in the nation. Risk of illnesses has increased as much as 14 percent in recent years thanks to the loss of forest cover in neighborhoods.

Deforestation is now considered one of the major factors of child mortality in the nation. Deforestation is polluting water, leading to micro-bacteria that causes illnesses. Deforestation also leads to an increase of mosquitoes and mosquito-born diseases. Air pollution also increases due to deforestation.

Deforestation must be brought to an end to better save the lives of the children of Cambodia. Sign the petition and ask the nation’s government to work to regulate and end the rapid loss of the nation’s forests.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Samal,

Children in your nation are dying at faster rates due to serious digestive and respiratory diseases, all linked to rampant deforestation. Deforestation is polluting the air and water, leading to micro-bacteria and mosquito-born illnesses.

You must protect the children of your nation. Deforestation must end so that children and their families can live happier, healthier, and safer lives. I ask that you work to end deforestation in Cambodia.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
