Come join us on June 28th for a happy hour to learn about UNICEF and their critical efforts to help children affected by the crisis in Ukraine.
UNICEF is on the ground and committed to the safety of all children and families. Children are terrified, in shock, and desperate for safety. They are being forced to seek refuge in subways and shelters, or to flee their homes to find safety either within Ukraine or in neighboring countries. Hundreds of thousands are on the move and many families are being separated. Most of those on the move are women and children. UNICEF is scaling up their lifesaving work in Ukraine, including:
• Trucking safe water to conflicted-affected areas
•Prepositioning health, hygiene and emergency education supplies as close as possible to communities near the line of contact
To give you a sense of the impact of your support, I’ve included some price points below.
•$35 could help buy a large first aid kit and medicines for a health worker
•$45 could help provide a family with an emergency water, sanitation and hygiene kit
•$75 could help pay for school supplies to help at least 20 children continue their education
•$120 could help provide clean drinking water with 16,000 water purification tablets
•$150,000 can establish a blue dot (child friendly) center to support 3-5,000 children and mothers with vital supplies and support each day for one month ($15,000 more to maintain for an additional month)
