UNICEF to raise funds for Afghan children

posted on 25/10/2001: 654 views


(WAM) UNICEF is launching a greeting card campaign in the UAE to collect funds for Afghan children. An estimated 36 million US dollars is required for human aid supplies in Afghanistan, a recent UNICEF report said. 'UNICEF greeting cards contribute one-third of the one billion dollar budget that is needed for relief campaigns in suffering countries,' said Sana Qureishi, manager of UNICEF's private sections divisions, according to a report in 'Gulf News.' 'Card designs are donations to the UNICEF from artists.'



'There are 250 card designs in the UNICEF range. Five Arab artists' designs have been approved by the selection committee in Geneva to be promoted this year,' he said. A UNICEF bureau was set up in Abu Dhabi in 2000. Its aim is to promote fund-raising for children in the UAE. Contributions will go to help suffering children the world over, but particularly to Afghanistan to help the current refugee situation. (WAM)
