U.S. Fund for UNICEF and Jenna Bush Hager Announce Next Generation Initiative to Improve Lives of Children Around the World
Date:7/23/2009

/p>

A UNICEF endorsed report released earlier this year, finds approximately 670,000 children under the age of five die every year due to lack of vitamin A in their diets. Iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) during pregnancy is associated with 115,000 fatalities annually, accounting for one fifth of total maternal deaths. And iodine deficiency, while greatly improved through salt-iodization campaigns, still affects nearly 50 countries.

Jenna Bush Hager and UNICEF's Next Generation have committed to raising $175,000 to ensure that the gains of recent years in combating preventable deaths, ill health, disability and impaired learning are not reversed and that the availability of Sprinkles for in-home use in Guatemala is scaled up.

To help reach our goal to combat malnutrition and reduce the number of daily deaths to zero, please visit www.unicefusa.org/donate/nextgeneration

About UNICEF

UNICEF has saved more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. Working in over 150 countries, UNICEF provides children with health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF's work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States.


Despite extraordinary progress, 25,000 children still die each day from preventable causes. Our mission is to do whatever it takes to make that number zero by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood. For more information, visit www.unicefusa.org
