Joelle is just five years old, and is not afraid of receiving her measles vaccination because she knows it will keep her safe and healty. What a brave girl!
“Joelle is not scared of the vaccine since her mother
told her that it will protect her from many diseases”
UNICEF is supporting a national measles campaign in Syria that will see 8,383 health workers vaccinate over 3.5 million children between the ages of five and twelve against measles.
This life-saving Inspired Gift will allow UNICEF to continue to reach real children like Joelle, providing them with a lifetime of protection from an otherwise deadly disease.
