From @unicef - Post 4/4: I vaccinated this little boy before his photo was taken – you can see from his finger. We mark each infant’s finger and record every child who has been vaccinated. If any children are missed, we go back to vaccinate within the same week. This boy is happy because I gave him a balloon. It may seem like nothing to you, but these children don’t have toys to play with. Children make kites out of plastic bags, or play in the sand. They love the balloons, and all the children run towards the vaccinators so they can get one. We give out 1.2 million balloons during each national polio vaccination campaign. It has been a long day, as we started at 7am. I also need to study. I am still at school, in 11th grade. I attend school after work. Working to eradicate polio has encouraged me to stay in the health sector. My dream is to become a midwife. I just hope my future husband will allow me to work - and those men are hard to find – but this programme is showing what women can do.

From @unicef - Post 3/4: I am only 19 years old, and yet I manage a team of four women. We go house-to-house educating families and vaccinating children. In my community, there are many families that do not allow their daughters to work. I am an exception. Women are also not allowed to leave the house without their father or husband’s permission. But men also can’t enter another man’s house, because this is where women can be free of their burqa. The home is also a woman’s place in my society. We need more women polio vaccinators and educators, because they can enter the house and check that every child has been vaccinated. Even if one child misses the vaccine, it could put the entire community at risk. In this photo, my team is giving vitamin A supplements in addition to the polio vaccine. Vitamin A helps build a child’s immune system and improves eyesight. During this national vaccination campaign, 8.9 million children will receive vitamin A tablets.

From @unicef - Post 2/4: In my country, guns and tanks are common. We don’t even think about it. This is an old military barracks, where kids come to play. I come here to speak to parents about vaccinating their children. One of the biggest challenges I face is families that refuse the polio vaccine. They say it is unsafe, or haram [forbidden by Islamic law]. There are even some doctors in my community that do not believe in multiple polio vaccinations. I try to explain that the vaccine is harmless and the only way to protect their child from paralysis. I also clarify that children must take the vaccine more than once because it builds their immunity.

From @unicef - Post 1/4: I will call myself Afia. But, forgive me – it is not my real name. Where I live, it is not safe for a woman to show her face. So, I would prefer not to use my real name. Today, I'm taking over UNICEF’s Instagram to give you an insight into my life and work vaccinating children in Afghanistan. It is not easy to be a woman, or child here. My cousin is just 11 years old, and she is already engaged and will soon be married. She won’t be able to go to school, and instead she will be forced to cook and clean for her husband and his family. I am lucky, my father is more liberal. He let me go to school and I have no pressure to get married, because I support my three unemployed brothers. Because I provide money, they value my thoughts and opinions. I have been working to eradicate polio for seven years. My job is very important, because Afghanistan has the highest number of polio cases in the world. I am one of 70,000 polio workers across the country that ensures 9.9 million children are vaccinated against polio. However, if I wasn’t working I would also be forced to marry. My job is not just saving children’s lives, it is saving my own.

From @unicef_burundi - #MalariaWorldDay: In Burundi, 1,547,804 malaria cases have been registered until mid-April 2018.

Children under 5 are particularly susceptible to malaria and the disease claims the life of a child every 2 minutes. Share awareness, be ready to #BeatMalaria - http://www.who.int/malaria/media/world-malaria-day-2018/en/

From @slum2school - WORLD MALARIA DAY

The high rate of child morbidity and mortality due to Malaria and especially in Africa, reminds us that there is so much more for us to do in curbing this menace that threatens the well being of the children within our communities.

Through our upcoming #WorldMalariaDay Outreach, we affirm that we are #readytobeatmalaria and work towards its elimination.

From @unicef_iraq - “The children have had a very difficult time, but now I can see the hope in their eyes. The Government of Germany will continue to support the Directorate of Education through UNICEF.” Development Minister Gerd Müller visited al-Huda Primary School in West Mosul today, where he met with students and teachers.

From @refugees - A young girl carries her brother through the Herjalleh shelter in rural Damascus where they are staying after fleeing fighting in Eastern Ghouta.
.
They're two of the many displaced residents living in desperate shelter conditions inside Syria. They have been in the shelter for several weeks and are desperate to return home. UNHCR has provided shelter kits to divide family living spaces and provide some privacy. Mattresses, blankets and kitchen sets have also been distributed.
.
Donor support has been generous, but much more is needed. In 2017, Syrian refugee response received only half of required funding. We can’t repeat in 2018. UNHCR urges donors to continue showing solidarity and compassion in 2018 to provide lifesaving support to these families and their host communities.

From @worldfoodprogramme_official - An apple a day...is not easily available to everyone in the world. 🍏 Childhood in Syria is tainted by war. Any hope for a better future starts with peace.
.
There are still millions of Syrians who are trapped in a cycle of poverty and hunger, with 6.5 million facing acute hunger and another 4 million at risk of becoming food insecure. WFP’s work has so far helped to lessen the effects of this crisis, but we are having to make tough choices because of limited funding for operation in Syria. This means prioritizing the most vulnerable who would fall even deeper into hunger without food assistance.
.
As conflict continues, civilians bear the brunt of the crisis, making it one of the largest mass displacements since World War II. The single greatest priority must be to end this brutal conflict. WFP appeals to all parties to protect civilians, respect humanitarian principles and allow for the safe delivery of food to families in need, no matter where they are.

From @unicefmexico - Factors such as poor infrastructure and equipment conditions, long distances, difficulties of access, lack of cultural and linguistic relevance, among others, increase the risk of girls, boys and adolescents leaving the school.
#RemontemosElMarcador for Children, so that everyone goes to school and learns.

From @unicefusa - They might hurt for a second, but #VaccinesWork — and we could save an additional 1.5 million lives by working together to improve global vaccination coverage!
