Every year, 6.9 million children under the age of five die from causes that have known cures. Similarly, millions of people are affected every year by humanitarian crises, such as typhoon Hayan or the Syria conflict, and up to 80% of the most at-risk populations are women and children.
UNICEF is calling on all CUNY, LAU, and AUB students to help us end child deaths and improve emergency response.
