UNICEF:Join the World’s Most Critical Mission
No one is safe until we are all Safe !
UNICEF has spent 75 years coming through crises to make childhoods brighter. They have decades of experience delivering over two billion vaccines to half the world’s children in any given year.
That is why UNICEF has been called upon by COVAX to procure and deliver more than 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines for 92 low and middle-income countries. They are the only organization that can get this done, and need our help. See this link -> Vaccine For Poorer Countries
