For the Children

UNICEF received an 8.8 million dollar grant from The Global Fund to aid in the fight against Malaria, AIDS, and Tuberculosis. Nearly 33,000 insecticide treated bed nets were distributed to help prevent Malaria. Vaccinations against measles and diphtheria were delivered along with vitamin A supplements to about a million. UNICEF and it’s partners have delivered meals to about 11,000 malnourished children monthly. UNICEF is also working toward protecting these vulnerable children from sexual abuse, female genital mutilation, and child prostitution.
