7 million children die each year as a result of third world debt crisis. By cancelling the interest rates on the debt repayments, third world countries will have enough money to spend on basic resources for the people living within their country. As a result, many deaths of children in third world countries could be stopped. The Australian Prime Minister has the power to cancel the interest rates for third world debt to Australia. By writing to him you are expressing your belief that this global issue needs to be resolved and that doing so may allow the Prime Minister to be re-elected.
