Although Tabaria has been immunised, the family still face many struggles. They have no toilet so they use the local beach and lagoon. They have one water tap for the children to wash their hands before meals and all drinking water comes from a public tap, available for just one hour on alternate days of the week. The sheer number and isolation of Pacific islands, particularly in Kiribati, make access to health and sanitation facilities difficult.
Simple and cost effective interventions like the rotavirus immunisation and clean water will save children’s lives.
Your donation will go towards funding essential healthcare, vaccinations and clean water programs that will improve the lives of children in countries such as Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Kiribati and Fiji. No other children’s rights organisation has the reach or the credibility that UNICEF does with governments, communities and partners. Together, we can help reach as many children as possible.
You can give a child like Tabaria the chance every child deserves for the best start in life. Please give generously today.
