7 Day fast for charity

16 year begins a 7 day fast to highlight the famine in Niger, she is fully supported by her parents and teachers and will only be drinking water.

I am fully in support of people fasting for charity etc, but I've not heard of fasts longer then 48 hours for a charitable cause. This just seems really unhealthy for the girl and I am concerned that none of her family seem a worried about it.

It also concerns me that the article has not highlighted any of the health issues for the girl undertaking the fast.

Maybe I am just be overly sensitive.
