#R2BC Wednesday’s #GoodNews

Some days nothing I can write can do justice to a story or collection of stories.
Japan pledging $1.5bn to help international aid and peace building is great but it pales in comparison to this:

Congo-Brazzaville, Guinea, Mali and Niger have agreed to divert a portion of state revenues from oil, gold, phosphate and uranium to a UN fund to fight childhood malnutrition. From 2017, $0.01 (£0.07) from every barrel of oil and $0.60 from every gram of gold will go to pay for supplements. The scheme is expected to raise about $100m a year.

No waxing lyrical, no trying to be clever today, just go out and do at least one good thing and make the world a bit better. 🙂
