How will India’s children breathe?
Delhi’s appalling pollution has prompted fears that millions of youngsters will suffer serious health problems later in life. To curb rising pollution levels in the national capital, we saw the recent introduction of the #oddeven scheme, allowing odd and even numbered cars on the road only on alternate days.
What’s scary is that a report prepared by the World Health Organization (WHO) (2014), listed 10 of 15 most polluted cities in the world, in India… indicating a greater risk for India’s children. As the country waits with bated breath to witness the success of this scheme, what about the respiratory health hazards that children in the other cities continue to face? #climatechange #children
