Can You 3/4J Help Some Grade 6 Students In Canada Explore The Answers To These Questions About Kutoa?



3/4J you know that Mrs Joyce has many wonderful friends via Twitter. There is a class of grade 6 students who have been exploring this months Kutoa support topics.

Here are the questions, can you help with the answers:

Q1 Why in Australia is it that children don’t get as many diseases as in Africa?

Q2 Why is it important to try to get rid of kala azar when malaria is stronger?

Q3 Why does Kutoa do 3 projects/voting options (why not 2 or 5) per month?

Q4 Can you get kala azar at any age?

Q5 (re: Kutoa Project #1) Why don’t mothers in Australia get sick when they give birth?

We need to vote on this months projects, lets’s see what we can do help. Please post your choice of which project we should vote for.

This months partner organisation is Doctors Without Borders.


Based on the humanitarian principles of medical ethics and impartiality, Doctors Without Borders (MSF – Medeceins Sans Frontieres) is an organization committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis regardless of their race, religion, or political affiliation. Operating independent of any political, military, or religious agendas, medical teams conduct evaluations on the ground to determine a population’s medical needs before opening programs, aiming to fill gaps that exist (rather than replicating services that are already offered) or reach communities that are not being assisted.

On any given day, more than 27,000 committed individuals representing dozens of nationalities can be found providing assistance to people caught in crises around the world. They are doctors, nurses, logistics experts, administrators, epidemiologists, laboratory technicians, mental health professionals, and others who work together in accordance with MSF’s guiding principles of humanitarian action and medical ethics.

MSF is an international, independent, non-profit medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people in emergency situation that have been affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters in close to 80 countries.

MSF is committed to bringing quality medical care in such crisis situations where either no alternative health care system exists or is no longer functional. MSF is neutral and impartial, treating all those in need irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation. Besides providing day-to-day healthcare services such as emergency care and surgery, MSF also works to tackle chronic diseases that need long-term treatment, such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis and neglected tropical diseases such as sleeping sickness.

Alongside emergency humanitarian relief, MSF can also raise awareness and create debate through its policy of ‘témoignage’. This means MSF acts as a witness and will speak out, either in private or in public, about the plight of populations it assists. In doing so, MSF sets out to alleviate human suffering, to protect life and health and to restore respect for human beings and their fundamental human rights.

In 1999, MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, “in recognition of [its] pioneering humanitarian work on several continents” and to honour its medical staff, who have treated tens of millions of people. The proceeds from the prize were used to set up a Neglected Disease Fund and the Access Campaign, which helped lower the price of HIV/AIDS treatment and stimulated research and development for medicines to treat malaria and neglected diseases like sleeping sickness and kala azar.

    I will vote for (Treating a deadly disease) because the disease will spread and will not stop unless there is a treatment to help people that are in need and if people don’t stop this disease will spread to Australia then we will all get sick.
