World Series Game II to Support UNICEF Efforts in Disaster Relief in Asia Pacific
Date:10/29/2009

NEW YORK, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is pleased to announce donations will be collected tonight at game two of the World Series at Yankee Stadium. The funds will benefit UNICEF and their relief and rebuilding efforts on behalf of victims of the recent natural disasters in the Asia Pacific region.

The devastating cluster of natural disasters that struck the Asia Pacific region earlier this month have affected nearly 9.8 million people--more than 3.8 million of the affected are children.

"Every day 24,000 children die of preventable causes--many in the countries that have been affected by this recent cluster of natural disasters," said Caryl Stern, president and CEO, U.S. Fund for UNICEF. "We do not want these emergencies to further compound the tragedy of these unnecessary deaths, and thanks to Major League Baseball, the Yankees and the wonderful generosity of New Yorkers we will be able to prevent these deaths."

Typhoons and floods in the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, as well as earthquakes in Bhutan, Indonesia and the Pacific Islands (resulting in a tsunami) have left families suffering from an alarming lack of access to safe water, food, blankets and clothing in all seven countries.

The funds raised will go to supporting UNICEF in its continued efforts to provide lifesaving assistance to children and women in all seven affected countries and help life return to normal as quickly as possible. Working with governments and civil society partners to provide relief in all countries, UNICEF is leading the efforts in providing water, sanitation and hygiene, education, child protection coordination and the provision of food and nutrition.

These efforts are part of a larger, unprecedented effort by MLB to celebrate community service and volunteerism at the 2009 World Series.
