Unicef have a nice programme at the moment involving bicycles. For 25 quid, you can buy a bicycle which will be given to a health worker to enable them to travel further to see more villages. This'll increase access to widwifery, vaccinations and so forth.
From the USA, the cost is $40.
One more bicycle has been sent using this scheme, thanks to Copenhagenize for linking to it (though the danish link is currently inoperative). I arrived at their older post on the unicef scheme via their post on Baisikeli.
A Taiwanese woman, who decided to go for acupuncture, neglected to inform the acupuncturist that she had previously had breast implants. Over the following weeks she went from a D cup to an A cup, and then sought assistance.
Fortunately for her the implants were saline rather than silicone.
