Humanitarian Day at COP-1517/12/2009 - by Climate Centre
December 15th was the "Humanitarian Day" at the UN Climate Change Conference. The Danish Red Cross organized a solidarity march honouring the women and girls across the world who must walk kilometres each day to obtain water for their families. Dozens of young women and girls walked six kilometres, carrying water to the Copenhagen Bella Centre where the climate negotiations are taking place. The walk was also supported by WHO Goodwill Ambassador Jet Li, who has close ties with the Red Cross Red Crescent.
