Gives 10 measles vaccinations
Gift Description:
$32.80 vaccinates 10 children from measles. Though measles deaths fell by 78% between 2000 and 2008, measles is still a leading global cause of vaccine-preventable death and disability in childhood. Those who survive the disease face life-long disabilities, including blindness and brain damage. Vaccines save lives, but they need to reach every child, everywhere to really work. Your gift reaches those who would otherwise go unvaccinated, improving their lives and furthering the global fight against measles.
