URGENT: Help protect children from new polio outbreak‏



Dear Friends,

I have an urgent request:

A polio outbreak has emerged in Somalia and Kenya and the risk of spread – even to neighboring countries – is very high, as many children remain unimmunized. Together, we can make a difference.

Supporters like you have brought us closer than ever to polio eradication, but this recent outbreak serves as a reminder that we could easily lose our progress against this highly contagious disease. We cannot let this happen.

The United Nations Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign is working with the United Nations and other partners to get vaccines to children who need them.

Donate to Shot@Life today and help us give 10,000 children a lifetime of immunity against polio. Your donation will directly support the United Nations’ work to end polio for good.

Every parent deserves the comfort of knowing that his or her child is safe from polio. As United Nations officials coordinate emergency immunization campaigns in response to this outbreak, your support is critical to making sure at-risk children are protected from this devastating disease.

The world’s children are counting on us to win the fight against polio. Donate by June 30 to help us reach our goal of supporting polio immunizations for 10,000 children.

Thank you,

Maggie Carter
