Help for childhood vaccination in developing countries

Chad

The social crisis caused by COVID-19 has caused massive vaccination campaigns among the most vulnerable population, children, to stop in developing countries, which will increase the 14 million children who were not vaccinated in 2019. With Your help, through the CENTIMOS SOLIDARIOS program, UNICEF, MEDICOS SIN FRONTERAS and UNHCR will be able to vaccinate thousands of children to immunize them against measles, polio and cholera, the main causes of mortality in different developing countries such as the Democratic Republic and the fields eastern Chad.

Description

Immunization is one of the most cost-effective medical interventions in public health and, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), prevents between two and three million deaths each year, especially children. But in many countries without resources or affected by instability or violence, immunization plans are in crisis and too often vaccines do not reach the people who need them most. In addition, due to COVID-19, many developing countries have stopped their massive vaccination campaigns because of lockdowns or for fear that the concentration of people could spread the virus more quickly. This is causing hundreds of thousands of children to have not received the necessary doses to be protected. That is why organizations such as UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders and UNHCR work to immunize children with vaccines in different developing countries such as the Democratic Republic and the fields of eastern Chad.

That is why at EROSKI we want to collaborate with UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders and UNHCR so that all together can reach the largest possible number of children, as soon as possible, and that they are immunized in time from these disabling or deadly diseases such as, for example, measles, polio, cholera.
