CNN's ‘The Survival Project’ spotlights UNICEF saving children's lives
Every day, 26,000 children die of preventable causes.
Now you have a chance to help save them.
Please watch "The Survival Project: One Child at a Time," a historic global broadcast on CNN and CNN International, airing on television worldwide this Sunday, July 6, at 8 and 11 pm (Eastern Time in North America; check your local listings.)
The special global broadcast will feature UNICEF at work to protect and support children, highlighting projects in Laos, Iraq, Ethiopia and Peru.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent, will host the program, which will explore “the challenges faced by children around the world and will offer viewers an opportunity to effect helpful change,” according to Sue Bunda, Executive Vice President of Content Development and Strategy for CNN Worldwide.
UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors Lucy Liu, Clay Aiken and Marcus Samuelsson will take part in the program.
Clay Aiken, singer and entertainer, is a proponent for education for all. He is seen here on a recent trip to Somalia.
Lucy Liu, actress and artist, is shown with children in Pakistan. She supports HIV/AIDS awareness and education programs.
Marcus Samuelsson, gourmet chef, is spokesman for the TAP Project, helping to make clean water available for all.
Celebrity volunteers appearing will be Joel Madden, Nicole Richie, and Al Roker.
Video diaries of several UNICEF ambassadors and celebrity volunteers will air, showing their work in the field and encouraging viewers to join the fight for child survival.
In addition to field reports from CNN correspondents, the broadcast includes a panel of volunteers and experts speaking about their experiences with UNICEF.
UNICEF has been helping children for over 60 years and has saved more children’s lives than any other organization in the world, helping to reduce child mortality to a record low by providing lifesaving help for children in need. UNICEF is in the field, every moment of every day, working for children.
Tune in to see how you can make a difference for children.
Every one of us can do something to help save the life of a child.
Please act now.
