How does UNICEF help?
UNICEF is the world’s biggest purchaser of vaccines. We’ve been working for decades to protect children from preventable diseases, and our vaccination campaigns reach 40 per cent of the world’s children.
In 2014, UNICEF procured 2.71 billion vaccines for 100 countries - from polio and measles to tetanus, tuberculosis and yellow fever vaccines. We only buy vaccines that pass the World Health Organisation’s international standards.
Help wipe out polio this Christmas with an Inspired Gift
Vaccinations have reduced the global number of polio cases by an incredible 99.9%. That means 15 million children who would otherwise have been paralysed by the virus are now walking, running and playing. But we're not there yet: millions of children are still at risk from this terrible disease. It's time to finish the job.
You can honour a loved one this Christmas by purchasing polio vaccinations on their behalf. Drop by drop, your gift will help UNICEF reach every last child and eradicate polio from children's lives forever.
It's this simple:
1. Purchase a Inspired Gift of 200 polio vaccinations for just $51.
2. A personalised card will be sent to your loved one telling them about the life-saving work they're helping to achieve.
3. UNICEF will deliver your vaccinations to children who need it most.
