Children step up again for UNICEF

By
From page A12 | November 11, 2012 |

Thank you to Mayor Joe Krovoza and Council members Dan Wolk, Lucas Frerichs, Brett Lee and Rochelle Swanson for continuing the Davis City Council’s long-term support for UNICEF. The council declared it supports UNICEF week, and especially recognized the school children of Davis for championing children’s health and survival by collecting contributions for UNICEF. Thank you, as well, to the generous donors at the council who gave more than $75 to kick off the campaign.

Every year, UNICEF reports on the progress made toward reducing the number of preventable deaths of children. Four years ago, that number was 26,000 children per day — 26,000 children dying from malaria, or dehydration, or tetanus. Today, because of efforts like those in Davis, the number of children under 5 who die each day has dropped to 19,000. This represents a 27 percent reduction in under-5 mortality in just four years. This is awesome progress, but UNICEF is not giving up. UNICEF believes, and I believe, that number should be zero.

Davis children have made a significant contribution toward this landmark accomplishment. Since 1998 alone, the children of Davis have collected more than $152,000 through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. That amount has been compounded in many years by matching grants.

Once again this year, Davis children supported UNICEF’s work by participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF collection boxes were distributed by volunteers at Davis schools. And by signing up at school, Davis children become part of a longtime Davis tradition.

For more information on how to support Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, email jholman@rmmenvirolaw.com or visit http://groups.dcn.org/davisuna.
