The United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) is celebrating 70 years of helping children all over the world through an interactive exhibit.
The exhibit features Unicef’s lifesaving work for children in the areas of health and nutrition, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, child protection, and emergencies and disaster risk reduction. It also features an innovative virtual reality section, where one can get a 360 degree experience of how life is like for children escaping the violence in Syria.
“For 70 years, Unicef has worked to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged, vulnerable, and excluded children around the world. We believe that every child, regardless of their background and circumstances, should have a fair chance at life and be able to reach their full potential,” says Unicef Country Representative Lotta Sylwander.
“It is our hope that by learning about the issues that children face and what UNICEF does to address these, we can urge the public to give their support, in any way they can. We are grateful to SM Supermalls for their steadfast support in raising awareness on children’s issues and protecting their rights,” she added.
Unicef does not get any funding from the UN and depends solely on voluntary donations from organizations and individuals to carry out its mission of helping disadvantaged children in the Philippines and all over the world.
