The Power of Kid Power

May 2017 was UNICEF Kid Power Month–and kids everywhere stepped it up to help other kids around the globe. Our Schools program unlocked nearly two million packets of therapeutic food, which will help save the lives of almost 14,000 severely malnourished children. Lives saved. Children empowered. A healthier future. This is the power of UNICEF Kid Power.
