UNICEF Global COVID-19 vaccines campaign - US
Support UNICEF’s global efforts to help deliver COVID-19 vaccines to the most vulnerable
About this Giving Opportunity
Ending the pandemic is a race against the clock. No one is safe until everyone is safe.
Responding to one of the biggest needs linked to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is equitable access to vaccines is, we believe, the right thing to do.
Z Zurich Foundation is supporting UNICEF’s efforts to help deliver COVID-19 vaccines to 92 low- and middle-income countries for the COVAX Facility. The Foundation is making an initial donation of CHF 1 million to UNICEF in support of the campaign to deliver 2 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines globally by the end of 2021. This is the first step to help provide some of the most vulnerable with equal access to COVID-19 vaccines.
Please join us in supporting this effort. For every dollar donated, ZZF will match 100%.
