Pella children helping around through UNICEF

Children in countries like Syria are among the victims when fighting erupts between groups in their land. UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, has mobile health teams that are providing medical assistance and nutritional needs for children in Syrian refugee camps. Because UNICEF is connected to the United Nations it is often allowed to enter countries when some other groups are not welcome.

Medicines and food assistance from UNICEF are very important to children in many countries. You can help by giving when a Pella child visits your home. A $1.00 contribution can provide a child with anti-malarial treatment; $15 can provide 12 packets of high energy biscuits for malnourished children; 60 cents can immunize a child against polio; $100 can immunize 357 children against measles.

Pella school children will be visiting people in neighborhoods (today) Thursday, October 24 to Monday, October 28, with UNICEF collection boxes. Your generosity is appreciated.

If you do not have the opportunity to contribute through one of the children, you may send a check to Pella AAUW -- for UNICEF to Marjorie Giles or Julia Moen.
