BENEFITING: U.S. Fund for UNICEF
The Girl Scout Daisies Troop 2747 has chosen U.S. Fund for UNICEF to support their humanitarian efforts, specifically, because of the work they are doing for the 5 million children in the Philippines who are severely affected by the super storm. in the Philippines. All proceeds of this fundraising will go directly to it.
Immediately after the storm, UNICEF Supply Division airlifted water purification tablets, medical kits, tarpaulins, nutrition supplements and other essential goods from its warehouse in Copenhagen. Today, UNICEF is on the ground in Tacloban, Cebu, Roxas, Ormoc and elsewhere assessing needs and delivering aid.
Almost 200,000 people in storm-ravaged Tacloban now have access to safe drinking water. Tacloban will also be the starting point for a mass measles immunization campaign in coming weeks. Their troops in the ground are working round the clock to make sure children are getting adequate care that they need. Our part is to show our support by donating money and spreading the word.
Also, our troop has organized a clothing drive for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. These donations will be shipped to the Philippines using the funds that will be raised from the Trinity Regional School community of students, teachers and parents in East Northport, NY and friends and families of Troop 2747.
