Pray for Bangladesh facebook page

For the first time in its history, the United Nations is trying to curb drownings in Bangladesh, which are the leading cause of child deaths in the country. 46 people die each day of drowning, most of them children. There is water everywhere in Bangladesh. Rivers, ponds, rice fields, and flood water. Most child deaths occur between 9am and 1pm when their caregivers are busy working. The UN is sponsoring child-minding centers where children can play safely while mothers work. They are also sponsoring swimming lessons for children. Pray for protection over children and young people (The Bible, Ephesians 6:1-4).
