Did you know that today 18,000 children will die of things we can prevent?
The Ridge UNCIEF Club works to raise money to donate various UNICEF inspired gifts to children in need around the world. We have previously donated a waterpump to town in need of a clean water supply. Currently we are working toward raising enough money for the following:
Measles Vaccines for 200 children ~ $57.20 (did you know that over 250 children will die TODAY from measles)
Tetanus Toxoid Vaccine for 800 mothers and their babies ~ $51.60 (this vaccine eliminates the threat of tetanus for 5 years)
Deworming Tablets for 1400 children ~ $39.34 (these pills stop intestinal worms and their miserable infections)
Micronutrient powder ~ $30.30 (this provides 900 packets to sustain 4 children for 7.5 months)
These are just a few of the various gifts we could possibly give. UNICEF is a worthy cause, and as a club we plan to donate as much as possible to aid in the various children around the world.
Thank you in advance for your support.
