unicef “We’re afraid of disease after the earthquake and that’s why I brought Neisha here,” says Indu, who’s just had her 4-year-old daughter vaccinated against measles and rubella. More than half a million children are being targeted in an emergency vaccination drive in the Kathmandu Valley as fears grow of disease outbreaks following the #NepalEarthquake.

  •   astajarlner @ayani82mirza outbreaks of disease like cholera etc is unfortunately pretty common in emergency situations like this. The sanitary system is no longer working and therefor bacterias are easily spread. And no - Unicef and partners doesn't charge for vaccinations - it's a humanitarian organization and all costs are covered by sponsors :-) 34min

unicef Boys play in the courtyard of Kadiatou Seth Conté Primary School, in the city of N'Zérékoré, #Guinea. The #Ebola outbreak kept schools in Guinea, #Liberia and #SierraLeone closed after the end of the July–August holidays, depriving 5 million children of months of education. Schools reopened in Guinea in January and with partners, we’ve helped reduce as much as possible the risk of Ebola transmission. #EbolaResponse #UNICEF UNICEF/NYHQ2015-0987/Bindra 1d

unicef The ‪#‎NepalEarthquake‬ has caused unimaginable destruction, flattening more than 130,000 homes & leaving 3 million people in need of food assistance. One week on, the health and well-being of children affected by the disaster are hanging in the balance – as many have been left homeless, in deep shock and with no access to basic care.

unicef Moses, pictured here at 1 month old, had already surmounted incredible odds when he was born. The wide-eyed boy came dangerously close to death five months ago when he was still in the womb of his mother, Isatu Mansaray, who had contracted #Ebola. “When they told me I was positive for Ebola, I was not happy, and my whole family was worried,” Isatu said. “I felt cold and I had pain all over my body. My eyes changed colour. I was worried that my baby would get Ebola from me.” But Isatu survived and Moses was born, testing negative for the virus. And with the help of ready-to-use infant formula, Moses is now healthy and growing. UNICEF Sierra Leone/2014/Romero 4d
