It's my birthday and I'm always grateful that me, my family and friends are healthy. Nonetheless, not everybody is in good health right now.⠀ The #Coronavirus pandemic is affecting the health and lives of many, including children.⠀ The impact of a large-scale outbreak, especially on poor and vulnerable children, can be immense.⠀ ⠀ @UNICEF is helping prevent the spread of #Coronavirus by supplying vital medical supplies, consulting with communities and implementing prevention campaigns. It is a priority to stop the spread of this new virus, and the misinformation that’s spreading alongside it. ⠀ ⠀ At times like this we need to come together. 🤝⠀ ⠀ With your help, I am hoping today to raise £27,000 to help fight this war and I will double the amount if we reach the goal.⠀ If we manage to reach our target, it will be enough to provide:⠀ ⠀ * 333,332 pairs of disposable gloves for health workers +⠀ * 2,777 surgical masks to help prevent the disease spreading further +⠀ * 9,615 sets of vented goggles⠀ ⠀ To donate, go to my Facebook page or click on the link in my Bio.⠀ For more information: https://www.unicef.org.uk/coronavirus-facts/⠀ ⠀ Any amount will be welcome to help fight this war against #COVID19 💪🏾⠀ ⠀ Thank you for all the support 🙏🏾⠀ Stay safe!
