For UNICEF and Why I Believe in Zero
I have been blown away by UNICEF’s commitment to save the lives pf children of the world. No child should ever die from a preventable cause. Every day, 25,000 do. “Believe in zero” is the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s rallying cry. They fervently believe in zero and ask all those outraged by the unnecessary deaths of children to join them.
I am honored that the US Fund for UNICEF asked me to guest post on their blog.
I write about how my parents nearly immigrated to Africa rather than the United States as a baby and how that has framed my outlook on so much of the work that UNICEF is doing there.Published April 15, 2009. Last updated October 8, 2017.
