Under the motto give heat to the World Cup initiative, manual work and the organization Save call the children on the day of the hand work to a sporty fair competition: which nation sews, knits or crochets the most blankets for babies in the third world to the World Cup final on July 11? About 4 million infants die each year shortly after the birth of easily preventable diseases. Many of them could be saved by simple means: vaccinations, antibiotics, or sufficient heat. Because in southern countries, babies can cool off very quickly and thus more prone to infections.
