BTN Australia giving guns to Iraq

Over in a country called Iraq a group of rampaging people with guns called Islamic State have taken over city’s and done lots of horrible things, so Iraq’s government have asked for help. Australia and America have responded to their call. Australia’s Hercules war planes have a important job to do during this fight, sending supplies to the people who are suffering in this war, Australia is even sending guns and ammo to Iraq. When Iraq’s government cried for help America did some air strikes on the rampaging group. Even tho Australia is sending supplies, they are not fighting in this war. One way for Australia to help is by sending in Combat troops but the prime minister is refusing to do that. There have been many times when Australia have supplied weapons to other countries, it might be for political reasons, economic reasons or because they just think it is the right thing to do.

BTN Ice Bucket Awareness

The Behind the News I did for this week was about the place where you donate your money after you have done the Ice Bucket Challenge. The Ice Bucket Challenge has drawn attention to people all around the world. Hundreds and thousands of people have become involved in the ice bucket challenge, but where does the donated money go? It goes towards research into a disease called Motor Neurone Disease or A,L,S for short. Motor Neurone Disease is when your nerves that are connected to your brain, and which controls the muscles, stop working, which leaves your body paralyzed and unable to move. Eventually it makes it hard to swallow or breathe. Doctors are trying to find a cure and trying to work out how the disease starts. The more money raised by The Ice Bucket Challenge, the more research can be done to try and find a cause and more importantly a cure for this horrible disease.
