“Winter is approaching, I can feel it in my bones. Literally. There is a chill in the air that is great for comfort food, warm jumpers and ugg boots but not so wonderful for sniffles, sneezes and runny noses. So while I am shopping for hearty soup mixes and jumpers I am also stocking up on specially marked Vicks products so I too can be part of their Road to Relief Campaign.”
What is the Vicks Road to Relief Campaign?
Last year, Vicks Road to Relief campaign helped save the lives of 2.3 million children. Yes – the Campaign that Mia wrote about here was responsible for helping a staggering 2.3 million children! This year with the help of their implementing partner UNICEF and the Australian public, Vicks Road to Relief hopes to achieve another breathtaking result.
How can I be part of it?
All you have to do is buy any of the specially marked Vicks product. This simple purchase will not only help relieve your family’s cough and cold symptoms but will also fund a measles immunisation for a child in a developing country. It’s so easy: buy 1 pack of Vicks, fund 1 immunisation.
Pneumonia is a serious and common complication of measles and the biggest killer of children under the age of five in developing countries. The simplest way to protect vulnerable children from this potentially deadly disease is through an immunisation against measles. The simplest way that you can help fund this immunisation is through the purchase of a specially marked Vicks product.
What is UNICEF’s involvement ?
UNICEF is dedicated to the global elimination of measles via the Global Measles Initiative (GMI).
