(upbeat music) - welcome to teen kids news. i'm veronique. let's begin with out top story for this week. (upbeat music) access to good medical care, is something we take for granted in this country. after all, if we have an accident or illness that requires surgery, no matter where you are in america, there's probably a qualified hospital nearby. but as amelia reports, that's not the case around the world. - when olivia waaben was a high school freshmen, she spent two weeks in the hospital. the experience opened her eyes to a scary statistic, two out of three people on this planet, don't have access to safe surgical care.
that's about 5 billion people. realizing how lucky she was to live in the united states, olivia became a girl with a mission. and here she is, to tell us about it. along with her friend, skyler troast. hi. - hi. - hello. - olivia, even before you went into the hospital, you were already involved with an international organization that provides medical care. - yes. that organization is operation smile. and operation smile's an international children's medical charity, that repairs cleft lips and cleft palettes in developing nations. often these children with their facial deformities, will suffer from a variety of physical and emotional effect, but operation smile steps in to help heal their smiles across the world. - specifically, what is a cleft lip, or a cleft palette? - so a cleft lip or a cleft palette, is simply a unilateral, or a bilateral gap in their mouth, that causes them to have malnutrition, to be shunned by their community, and sometimes not even be able to go to school. so it's really important that operation smile provides them access to proper medical care,
so that they can live a normal life. and skyler, how did you get involved with operation smile? - i got involved with operation smile, my sophomore year of high school, when i just heard about the club through a few friends. i attended my first meeting, and i learned about the organization, and how they raise money, and provide surgical care to those who have cleft lip, cleft palettes, and other facial deformities. it was then that i grew such a love for operation smile, that i was motivated to take advantage of all the opportunities available to students that operation smile makes. - olivia, what happened during your time in the hospital, that made you aware that safe surgery was such a problem around the world? - yeah, so i remember one night in particular, a nurse wheeled me out to this beautiful atrium, and i could see all the different rooms in the hospital, and i began to think about the tons of illnesses, diseases, and disorders, all the kids in the hospital have, and how we're so lucky to be in a place where we have access to proper medical care. but then i thought about all the kids who weren't in the hospital. alall the kids around the worl,
who can't even see a doctor. and that made me think about how fortunate i am, to have proper medical care, and how it's just at the end of the day, a fundamental human right. - so you wanted to take action. what were some of the things you did? - when i got back to school, i immediately threw myself into the organization, and organized girl scout workshops, service projects, like smile bags, are just simply a bag of donations to give to these children after their surgeries. i made smile dolls, which help comfort the kids after their surgeries, and beforehand as well. and i've also hosted leadership summits across new jersey. - skyler, you're president of your school's operation smile club. what are the goals of that club? - one of the main goals, is to educate students about operation smile, and to raise awareness throughout our community. i try to ensure that all the students know that there are other problems outside the united states, that they might not be aware of, and that it's our job as students, to take initiative to better these problems, and to help out in the ways that we can. - you got to see operation smile in action when you went to peru, as a medical mission.
- yeah, i got to see operation smile impact the families, as they go through the surgical process. i got to see individuals go through pre-screening, post-op, pre-op, and even leave with at beautiful, beautiful smile. while i was there, i noticed that the hospitals didn't have the same set up as we do in the us, and that really effected me, because i can go to the hospital any second i want to, and receive amazing surgical care, while people in peru do not have the same things accessible to them. - olivia, tell us about the campaign called, until we heal. - yes, of course. so, it might seem complex, but until we heal, is a pretty simple. it's this idea that there's five billion people who lack access to surgical care, worldwide. and we won't stop until we heal each and every child. this is a primarily youth-led movement, with support from doctors and celebrities, so we're really trying to get a chain reaction going, to involve as many people as possible, in eliminating the barriers care.
- what results have you achieved so far? - in terms of results, we've had across the nation, tons of kids and students, create events, social media campaigns, and other activities to help people get involved in until we heal. on the new jersey level, skyler and i have organized a t-shirt campaign. we had kids purchase shirts, that they then posted pictures of on social media, on nj until we heal day, and finally, we hosted our new jersey safe surgery summit, where we had doctors, students, and medical professionals come and brainstorm ways to spread until we heal further. - and how about kids around the country? if they wanna get involved, what suggestion can you make? - the biggest suggestion, is to go to untilweheal.org. there's tons of information about how to get involved, and the types of events. - great talking to you both. thanks for joining us. - thank you! - thank you! - until we heal. clear proof that no matter how big a problem may be, something can always be done to make things a bit better.
it all starts with a desire, and commitment, to take action. for more information, follow the link on our website. for teen kids news, i'm amelia. - in make the grade, i'll tell you a fun way to build your vocabulary. teen kids news, will be right back. - [announcer] closed captioning is brought to you by...

think he'll get the hint? i'm christin, here to help you make the grade. - every state has one, but most of use don't know why they look the way they do. here's eric, with flag facts. (patriotic music) - in 1886, france gave the us a gift, to symbolize friendship and independence. officially named, liberty enlightening the world, we call it, the statue of liberty. and she proudly stands at the entrance to new york harbor. the concept of liberty, is an important symbol for new york. - [randy] the flag of new york, comes from the state seal, and it features both liberty and justice. - [eric] the roman goddess, liberty, holds a staff, with a cap on it, known as a liberty cap, it symbolizes freedom from slavery. the discarded crown at liberty's feet, represents another type of freedom,
america's independence from england. the goddess, justice, is blindfolded to show that justice is blind to race, religion, and income. scales represent equality for all, while the raised sword, points out the willingness to fight for it. - [randy] in the middle of the flag, you see the hudson river, and on the hudson river, are two boats, meant to represent commerce. atop the state seal, is an eagle sitting on the globe. the globe shows the western hemisphere, and that was meant to represent the new world, and new york's important place as a port city, in the development of the new world. - finally, the word excelsior, encourages new yorker's to reach ever higher, to achieve their goals. maybe that's why new york city has so many skyscrapers. just about everyone knows manhattan, new york, is called the big apple. but did you know that manhattan, kansas, has a similar nickname? it's called the little apple. with flag facts, i'm eric. (patriotic music)
- if you live in oklahoma, and own a donkey, be careful. it's against the law to let your donkey sleep in your bathtub. but only after seven at night. apparently it's okay for your donkey to nap in the tub during the day. (upbeat music) - coming up, we'll walk the walls of england's historic city of york.
- what was once a roman fortress, is today, one of england's most popular cities for tourists to visit. nicole tells us more. (patriotic music) - when you wander along the quaint streets of york, it's hard to imagine that it's history was far less colorful. lining its stone lanes, called snickelways,
used to be butcher shops. sanitization was non-existent back then, so the butchers just tossed the unwanted parts, onto the street. which was called shambles street. all that blood and guts made quite a mess. and that gave us a word we still use today. when we say something is in great disorder, we say it's in shambles. (slow music) fortunately, as the town grew, the butcher shops were a place to find chocolate makers. york became famous for it's sweets. since many people in the days of yore were illiterate, it was the custom for shops to identify themselves, by hanging signs with pictures. rising above the rooftops, are the towers of the largest gothic cathedral in northern europe. called yorkminster, it took two centuries to build the ornate church. but the towns most unique feature, is the protective wall that encircles the old section.
and it's a wall that the public is welcome to walk on. the first walls were built by the romans in 71 a.d. then rebuilt by the english in the 12th century. strolling along the old wall, is a popular attraction, for tourists, and locals alike. - it's great. it bring you around all the sights, so you can pretty much see everything. 'cause it brings you around the whole city. - the wall makes a circuit that runs about two and a half miles. along the way, there are gates and guardhouses. now there are houses outside the old walls. but back in the day, an army of vikings might have been camped there, preparing to attack. they cut holes in the walls, so that archers could fire their arrows at the enemy. these were called loopholes. a term still in use today, as in a loophole in a contract, or a video game. the ancient walls were built to keep first,
the roman soldiers, and then the townspeople safe. it must still be working. according to a travel survey, york is one of the world's safest places to visit. in york, for teen kids news, i'm nicole. (slow bluesy music) - the boston red sox, have eight world series titles. but, they won no world series, from 1918, to 2004. why, you ask? well, people speculated that the reason that the red sox were not winning world series, was because they sold babe ruth to the new york yankees. thus, this world series drought was nicknamed, the curse of the bambino. the red sox had chances to break this curse, in 1946, 1967, 1975, and 1986, but they lost all of those world series. however, the red sox finally broke the curse of the bambino, in 2004, with a world series sweep, of the saint louis cardinals. i'm matt, with teen kids news.

that don't have some of the things we use everyday. but there are simple ways, even teens, can make a difference. eden tells us more. - when we're hungry, it's easy to cook something on the stove, or in a microwave. but for many people around the world, that's just not possible. not only don't they have microwaves and stoves, thy don't have the electricity needed to power them. but there's a pretty amazing invention that can do the job, without needing to plug anything in. it's one of the incredible devices in the book, 100 tools for empowering global women. and it was written by betsy teutch. welcome back. - great to be here, thanks. - you call this tool, the wonder bag. how does it work? - the wonder bag, is an insulated bag for cooking in. they call it a fireless cooker. it's kind of like a crock pot, but it doesn't require any electricity.
