With the end of the year in sight, and as I travel to London today to meet the team at UNICEF once again, it seems appropriate that I post one final reminder about the Pampers and UNICEF campaign, which ends this month.
It is easy to forget that the fight again tetanus in the developing world continues daily; it is certainly easy for me to forget despite travelling to Cameroon and witnessing the work of the Pampers and UNICEF partnership first hand.
So these images also act as a reminder to me of all that has been achieved so far in eliminating a disease we don’t have to think about in the UK, and the work that still needs to be done. It is also a last opportunity for me to post these images here this year.
Around the world the campaign has reached 100 million women and their babies in 21 countries across 2 continents. The aim is to help globally eliminate the disease by raising money for the life-saving vaccines needed to protect the lives of the 170 million women and their babies still at risk from the disease.
Travelling to Cameroon this summer was an incredible personal journey for me, yet one I have been pleased to be able to share on my blog. Incredible to think a blogger could make this trip. It may have been six months ago now but regularly people are still clicking over and reading about the trip, for which I am very grateful.
So here’s a final reminder in pictures of some of the people the campaign is helping – individuals who had a real impact on me when I was fortunate enough to meet them.
The Pampers and UNICEF campaign runs until the end of December. For every Pampers product purchased with the “1 pack = 1 life-saving vaccine” logo, Pampers will donate the cost of one tetanus vaccine to UNICEF. Additionally, by visiting the Pampers Village website and clicking on the Big Kiss button, a ‘virtual kiss’ will be sent to Pampers and UNICEF. For every ‘virtual kiss’ sent, Pampers will make an additional donation to UNICEF.
