With UNICEF's assistance, we have set up a team page for the purchase of measles, polio, and tetanus vaccines. It will cost 80cents to immunize one child against measles, polio, and tetanus. The total cost to immunize 5,400 children against these childhood diseases is $4,320 so we've placed our team page's goal at $5,000. All contributions are direct to UNICEF.
About UNICEF's Immunizations:
"Measles causes a debilitating attack on the immune system of a child with the risk of permanent physical and mental disability and claims the lives of hundreds and thousands of children annually. The measles vaccine is a simple and effective solution to stop this disease."Polio Vaccines
"Polio is a highly infectious viral disease, mainly affecting young children. It is transmitted through contaminated food and water, and multiplies in the intestine, from where it can invade the nervous system. Many infected people have no symptoms, but can still transmit the infection to others."Tetanus Vaccines
"In many countries, babies are delivered in challenging and unhygienic circumstances, putting mothers and their newborns at risk for a variety of life-threatening infections. Maternal and neonatal tetanus is among the most common lethal consequences. But maternal and neonatal tetanus deaths can be easily prevented by immunizing mothers with tetanus vaccine."If you would like to participate and join One Rose for Michael J.
