Did you know that this year mark the 10th Anniversary of the Pampers and Unicef 1 pack = 1 vaccine campaign? Approx 500,000 newborn babies have been saved and a vaccine now reaches a mother and her baby every second every day.
However, there are still 21 countries where the disease remains a threat. Which is why I am posting today. If you had just one wish for your child what would it be? I'm going to guess that good health is high up on the list right?
Maternal and newborn tetanus may not be a disease that you’re familiar with, but it affects families in some of the poorest areas of the world and occurs when newborns are infected as a direct result of unhygienic birthing practices.
Once newborn tetanus has been contracted there is no real cure.
And it claims the lives of 49,000 newborns every year, which is equivalent to one baby’s life every 11 minutes.
And we can help, thanks to the support of parents like us, Pampers and Unicef have helped to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus in 17 countries. BUT there are still 21 countries where the disease remains a threat. By purchasing any product in the Pampers range you will automatically send a vaccine to a Mother and her baby.
Whats more just by reading this post and watching the video below an extra 3 vaccines will be sent to one of those 17 countries still fighting to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus.
AND you can help even more!
As Pampers and Unicef blow out the candles on their tenth birthday cake and make their one wish, they want to see your photos of your little monsters blowing out the candles on their birthday – For every heart-warming picture you share of your LO’s birthday wish on social media using the #PampersUNICEF hashtag AND every time you share the Wish film below, Pampers will donate the cost of another vaccination.
So come on, what are you waiting for, you have already donated 3 vaccines just from reading this post and you can help even more, remember
1 pack = 1 vaccine
1 wish = 1 vaccine
1 share = 1 vaccine
