The team’s hard work pays off. Families have heard radio announcements about the vaccination campaign and they’re waiting anxiously for them to arrive. Ahmed goes from house to house, talking to parents and vaccinating children.
"This vaccine will protect your child from polio," he says. "If your child gets polio and becomes disabled, the whole family will suffer because you have to take care of the child and carry him everywhere, even to the toilet."
"We need to vaccinate our children
because they are a part of us. We
will not leave out even a single child".
Would you teach for free in a dusty refugee camp after you’d lost everything?
You might remember the terrifying abduction of 270 Nigerian schoolgirls by terror group Boko Haram in 2014. It sent shockwaves across the world and swept social media with a movement calling to #BringBackOurGirls.
Years on, Boko Haram’s violence still threatens children in the Lake Chad region. Millions of children in the region have been forced from their homes and out of school. Even when they reach safety, many children miss their chance to learn for one simple reason: there is no one to teach them.
UNICEF wants to help 1.3 million children learn during the crisis this year. We couldn’t do it without teachers like Ms Sanda, who helps children at the Dalori refugee camp in Nigeria go to class, play and feel a little normal again.
