Hi, we are the Poolesville UNICEF Club, a chapter that focuses on raising funds to support UNICEF's missions and goals. Right now, around the world, so many people are getting infected by the corona virus. Through this fundraiser, we hope to aid UNICEF in their endeavor to provide medical supplies and keep children and their families protected from sickness.
As of March 27, 2020, UNICEF has shipped more than 4.27 million gloves, 573,300 surgical masks, almost 1 million N95 respirators, among other supplies, in support of countries as they respond to the corona pandemic.
UNICEF is also working with the World Health Organization, governments and partners to equip children, pregnant women and their families with the information they need to know on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes the development of online training modules for health workers, and FAQs and guidance for parents, pregnant women, and children.
