Pampers and UNICEF say a BIG ‘Thank you’ to parents in Ireland for helping to raise the funding

 

Updated : Apr 9, 2009

Pampers and UNICEF Ireland are delighted to announce that the funding for over 1.5 million tetanus vaccines has been raised by the 2008 Pampers & UNICEF 1 pack = 1 vaccine campaign – an increase of 337,362 vaccines from the 2007 campaign.

Since its launch in 2006, the Pampers and UNICEF partnership in Ireland has raised enough funding for almost 3.5 million vaccines to protect mothers and babies against maternal and newborn tetanus.

For every specially marked pack of Pampers products purchased between October to December each year, Pampers donates the cost of one vaccine to UNICEF Ireland.

The campaign is committed to helping UNICEF to support countries in eliminating maternal and newborn tetanus by 2012*.

Every year, maternal and newborn tetanus claims the lives of approximately 30,000 mothers and 140,000 babies in the developing world. However, shockingly, the true extent of the tetanus death toll is uncertain, as a vast number of tetanus related deaths go unregistered.

Pampers spokesperson and Hollywood mum Salma Hayek, who supported the 2008 campaign, is passionate about the cause and dedicated to helping mums across the globe gain access to life-saving tetanus vaccines. Salma encouraged parents in Ireland to get involved and help support the campaign by stating: “If you knew how to help save a child’s life, what could stop you?”

UNICEF Ireland Executive Director Melanie Verwoerd said: “Here at UNICEF Ireland, we know that reducing newborn and maternal deaths is central to our mission to ensure that every child survives. Which is one reason I am so pleased about UNICEF Ireland’s partnership with Pampers to protect mothers and babies from tetanus — a lethal but preventable disease. Through the “One Pack=One Vaccine” campaign, Pampers is helping UNICEF Ireland fund millions of lifesaving tetanus vaccines.”

Being a Very Happy Pig, we previously never saw a need for nappies but when we have our next batch of piglets we will definitely consider using the product.
