After a devastating earthquake destroyed her home in Papua New Guinea, one-year-old Solina Asia was staying at a crowded temporary shelter when she fell ill with diarrhoea. If untreated, diarrhoea be deadly, especially for young children. 

Luckily, she was given oral rehydration salts to prevent her from becoming severely dehydrated, help her recover and get her smiling again! Diarrhoea is a leading killer of children, particularly in developing countries, despite it being easily preventable.

This Inspired Gift has already reached real children just like Solina and has significantly improved their health. UNICEF is working to make sure that every child, everywhere, has access to quality health care and nutrition.
