Joelle is just five years old, and is not afraid of receiving her measles vaccination because she knows it will keep her safe and healthy.
“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 Inspired Gift helps UNICEF to continue to reach real children like Joelle, providing them with a lifetime of protection from an otherwise deadly disease.
