In Ghana, some women go to great lengths to change their dark skin to a lighter shade. But bleaching and the use of strong chemicals can be very dangerous. It can even kill you. This week the World Vision Report focuses on the high cost of being pale. We also visit with the Ray Charles of Cambodia, sample the music of Brazil’s Gilberto Gil, and taste some special hot chocolate from Mexico. It’s a tasty week on the World Vision Report. Read the full description.
