I BELIEVE IN ZERO – Learning from the World’s Children

“Believe in zero” is the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s call-to-action that invites people to join us in putting an end to the unnecessary death of 15,000 children who die each day of preventable causes. This calls for the day when the world can roll back the number of children dying from avoidable causes from 15,000 to zero. That’s zero children killed by malaria and measles, poisoned by unclean water, lost for a lack of safe shelter, or by falling prey to malnutrition. As the organization that has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization, we are committed to doing whatever it takes until we achieve our goal of reaching zero preventable deaths. We fervently believe in zero and ask our most loyal supporters, and those who are outraged by this issue, to join us.
