Doctor Deang Xayaseng is one of thousands of health workers protecting young children in Laos as part of a polio vaccination campaign. To protect him against against this preventable disease, this young boy will only need to recieve two small drops of the vaccine from Doctor Xayaseng.

Across Laos, UNICEF worked hard to vaccinate more than 460,000 at-risk children aged between zero and five as a part of a ten day campaign against polio. The campaign was developed in response to severe outbreaks of the disease in 2015 and 2016.

As of May 2017, Laos is officially no longer infected with polio virus type 1 - with zero reported cases in the last 24 months. Your Inspired Gift will help UNICEF's work to eliminate this deadly disease; making sure that no child will have to unfairly suffer from the impacts of polio.
