How Mexico’s Summer Camps Are Killing Kids’ Lives
It’s no secret that Mexico is a country where kids are dying.
According to a recent report by the UN, the country’s child mortality rate has soared to 42 per 100,000 children, compared to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) average of 12.7 per 100.000.
It’s an alarming figure that has sparked debate about whether Mexico should be doing more to protect children.
The United States has taken a hard line on the issue, with President Donald Trump recently declaring that Mexico’s children are “the most beautiful in the world,” and that he would do “whatever it takes” to protect them.
The United States and Mexico have also agreed to a “Mexico First” plan that calls for more stringent child protection measures and a crackdown on trafficking, though it’s unclear whether those measures will be enough to stem the tide of deaths.
In recent years, the number of children living in extreme poverty in Mexico has grown dramatically.
According of the UN’s children and youth agency, the average Mexican child was living in poverty in 2017, with the United States topping the list with an average annual income of just over $9,500.
This means that the majority of children in Mexico live in poverty.
Many children have to live in dangerous conditions in overcrowded camps and homes that lack basic sanitation, food, and clean water.
A number of these conditions are worsened by the lack of proper social services and services in schools, which often lack adequate funding to provide basic instruction.
This isn’t the first time that Mexico has seen a spike in the number and severity of child deaths in recent years.
The government has struggled to combat the issue for decades, but in recent months, the government has begun to address some of the more serious problems plaguing its children.
The president recently announced that he is moving the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C. to Mexico City, which has been home to the US Embassy since it opened in 1894.
A spokesperson for Mexico’s Ministry of Education said that the decision to move the embassy “was made with the full understanding that it will further assist the Ministry in the delivery of programs, programs, and services to the communities affected by child trafficking.”
A Mexican diplomat, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, told Mashable that the move was made to “avoid any potential negative consequences for our relations with the US” after the Trump administration announced its crackdown on child trafficking in Mexico.
The Mexican Embassy’s spokesperson said that while the move to move to Mexico is “in the interest of both our countries and Mexico as a whole,” it will “continue to work closely with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry’s Office for International Cooperation.”
The Mexican government’s decision to shift the embassy to Mexico comes at a time when the number one cause of death for children in the country is malnutrition.
According for the UNICEF, about 60 percent of children aged between 6 and 15 die from malnutrition.
According to the UNDP, in 2017 Mexico had the highest rate of malnutrition in the region, with an estimated 3.2 million children in extreme and very severe malnutrition.
A study published last year found that Mexican children are living in “severe, extreme, and chronic” poverty, and that children’s health outcomes are “shaky at best.”
In addition to the alarming increase in the deaths of children, the lack in health care, sanitation, and basic services in Mexico is also a major contributing factor to the rising death toll.
Despite the grim statistics, the Mexican government has shown a renewed interest in addressing the problem.
On February 28, the National Assembly passed a resolution that stated that Mexico “will not allow its children to be exploited and neglected,” and pledged to combat trafficking and other forms of exploitation and exploitation.
However, Mexico’s government has yet to follow through with its promises, which may mean that the issue will remain a sensitive one for many years to come.
