easyJet supporting Unicef to help keep children safe from polio
Millions of children around the world are in danger of contracting polio – it’s highly contagious and can lead to life-long paralysis. There is no cure, yet there is a safe and effective vaccine. It can cost as little as 27 pence or 33 cents to protect a child against polio forever.
In 1988, polio was endemic in 125 countries. Today, thanks to successful vaccination programmes like those funded by easyJet and Unicef’s Change for Good partnership, it is endemic in just two: Pakistan and Afghanistan. We are close to the goal to end polio forever, but to do so we have to reach every child.
Thanks to the support of easyJet customers and employees, our Change for Good partnership has raised more than seven million pounds, helping to protect millions of children around the world from disease and keep them safe during emergencies.
Your kind donations will help Unicef keep more children safe.
