Where there's a will, there's a way! UNICEF & partners are entering the besieged city of Madaya, Syria to distribute life-saving supplies. ‪#‎nochildtoofar‬

If you've seen ‪#‎Madaya‬ on the news, you've seen photos of children suffering from severe malnutrition. About 20,000 children have been cut off from the world, with NO food or water. Our President and CEO David Morley talks about the challenges of reaching the hardest-to-reach on CTV News Channel here: http://www.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=783828

Today's going to be a good day - we can feel it! We're inspired by the passion and determination of our vaccination team in Nepal. When it comes to saving children's lives, there's no child too far.

1 email = 1 vaccine. (Some things in life are complicated, but this one's pretty simple.) Sign up for our email updates and our partner will donate a life-saving vaccine to protect a child. <3 There's #nochildtoofar!

Happy World Teachers Day to passionate, dedicated teachers around the world! Thanks for inspiring every child to reach their full potential.

We're so proud to train and support teachers, especially those making a difference to the world's most vulnerable children. Sometimes children miss out on school because of poverty, gender, geography, disability, or conflict - but these teachers rise to the challenge and get things done. We salute you in our blog. :)
