Lack of clean water and safe sanitation and its direct link to disease is the second biggest killer of children worldwide. That lack of clean water also keeps girls out of school and keeps women away from work, either because they are sick or because they are spending hours each day walking to fetch water leaving many in poverty. World leaders have pledged to end malnutrition and reach everyone everywhere with clean water and basic sanitation by 2030. If by giving children a start in life that includes access to clean water and decent toilets, then we are a step closer to a healthier, happier generation.
It doesn't matter how many "near-naked snaps" he's posted on his Instagram over the past few weeks and months, it doesn't matter how complimentary your tone is (it's not body-shaming if we're saying he looks good, right?) and no, it definitely does not matter how big the c**k in question is, people.
We may not be seeing this crisis on the news, but having seen for myself the devastating impact the drought is having on children here in Lesotho, I've been left in no doubt just how desperate the situation has become. The scariest thing is if we don't act now it could become so much worse. We simply cannot turn our backs on these children in their time of need.
Kim's lasting appeal also might have something to do with her hyper-awareness of celebrity culture, and of her own place within it. This is the woman whose backside "broke the internet" -- and naturally, said buttocks are now available as a Kimoji. Here is someone who understands social media better than most marketers
The fact of the matter is, the past 18 months have seen Kim using her celebrity status to speak out on a variety of issues, both on a global scale and on topics that relate to her personally... The problem here isn't with Kim, but with us. It's not that Kim hasn't been using her platform, it's that we haven't been willing to listen to her. And why is that?
With Annihilation week upon us my gut tells me we'll be waving goodbye to Andy pretty soon, particularly if the vote remains in the claws of his fello...
Here's where the power of film comes in. For an idea to really take hold and change to happen, it's not enough for the head of a company to meet new environmental requirements. It's not enough for an individual to start recycling or buying food from a sustainable source. We need everyone.
Time once again to peer behind the sanitised public veil of the modern celebrity, this time we ponder whether the rich and famous have home IT problems just like the rest of us.
For all his shouting, the blame cannot be laid entirely at the Ginger One's door. Those BBC bosses watching the jewel that was Top Gear crumble in their hands must ask themselves today why they once again remained in thrall to one 'talent' for all those months the show was in production.
My father and I sit in the back room of my childhood home and stare out of the window at his small, well-maintained but very much a self confessed "work in progress" garden with highlights of The Chelsea Flower show whispering from the television set as we drink wine and reminisce.
With most of the polls saying it's too close to call, turnout is going to be a huge factor on Thursday. As I've spoken about many times before, there is a clear and alarming demographic divide, with young people much less likely to come out and vote than older people. For me the real fear is that the older generation will end up, by default, making this decision for the younger generation - on whose lives this referendum will have a far greater impact. I hope this show will provide all voters - of all ages - with the confidence to make an informed judgement for themselves come polling day. What it won't tell you is how to vote - that's up to you. Also, I still haven't decided. Must do that.
Rod Stewart is stood a few feet away, that unmistakable shock of hair, a face that looks like it was carved out of granite, every line tells a story. ...
Today the cost of crossing the English Channel has never been higher. Unicef's research estimates that smugglers and traffickers are now charging between £4,000 and £5,500 per person but for unaccompanied children, unable to pay these huge sums of money, this has forced them to take even more significant risks from committing crimes to raise the money to hiding in the back of refrigerated lorries.
We are, of course, a sea-faring nation, so perhaps it was apt that the EU referendum campaign took to the water today. Apt, but still bizarre. Very bizarre, as the two rival campaigns decided to duke it out on the River Thames...
When I was growing up, my mother would torment me with words like 'balance' and 'moderation'. It just all seemed so boring at the time, but I guess the moral of the story is that she was (as per) quite right. It's good to feel scared occasionally, especially when it motivates action. But only when you can feel utterly unafraid later.
