UNICEF is known particularly for work with children in the third world. They are always there to help, in situations of crisis, whether it be earthquakes, droughts or natural disasters. On their UNICEF homepage about us they state:-
UNICEF believes that every child should have clean water, food, health care, education, and a safe environment in which to grow up. UNICEF upholds the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and works to hold the international community responsible for their promises to children.”
They are known as the charity to trust and UNICEF UK last year raised a massive £42.9 million for their work with children worldwide. However, are they all that they are cracked up to be? I was shocked to find what I can only describe as a more sinister side lurked beneath the surface of their squeaky clean image.
In 1993, a paediatrician by the name of Prof David Southall who has since been disgraced , discredited and struck off the GMC medical register, worked for UNICEF on a project in Bosnia AK-47sAre Weapons of Mass Destruction Too – John Humphrys As a result of what he saw there he set up an organisation called Child Advocacy International now renamed Child Health Advocacy International or sometimes Maternal and Child Health Advocacy International, which he still has a large input in. Prof David Southall can be found on the board of trustee’s.
He was struck off at the GMC for serious professional misconduct in cases involving children. The BBC News in 2007 reported that:-
“The General Medical Council decided last week that he had abused his position by accusing a mother of drugging and murdering her son.”
He was also accused of hiding secret files containing data of children in cases where he been involved, These files were kept separately from the children’s medical records and their data remained undisclosed during criminal proceedings. The same BBC report reports that:-
“The GMC also ruled that, in some cases, Dr Southall acted inappropriately in keeping original medical documents on children in his care in his own special case files separately from their official medical records.
Lawyers acting for the Attorney General are now examining thousands of these files amid concerns that they were not revealed during criminal proceedings.”
Prof David Southall was also involved in the Sally Clark case. Sally Clark’s child Harry, who, we have since learned died five hour after vaccination, as reported in the Spectator in May 2007, was said to have been murdered by Sally along with her other child, who both died SIDS Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or cot deaths.
