To celebrate World Humanitarian Day, young fundraisers across the UK are raising money for UNICEF's It’s Time to Share appeal for children in East Africa.
Our young fundraisers include:
- Four-year old Evie from Chesham, who will swim one length of her local pool every day for a week.
- A group of seven children from Bournemouth, who are doing a sponsored walk from Bournemouth Pier to Boscombe Pier.
- Six-year old Alfie from Gloucestershire, who is putting on a puppet show about food for his family and friends.
"I have decided to raise money because I want to make the children smile again," said Evie. "I really like swimming and I’m going to swim without armbands or a woggle!"
Julie Weston, UNICEF UK Deputy Executive Director, said: "Today, on World Humanitarian Day, we must applaud children in the UK like Evie and Alfie, for sharing their time to help children in East Africa. By sharing a little of what we have, we can all save children’s lives."
