A deadly measles epidemic is sweeping across Samoa. Donate now and help immunise and protect children.

Main image

Right now, a dangerous measles epidemic is sweeping across Samoa. 81 people have been confirmed dead - an overwhelming majority of which were children.

Children in Samoa are in very real danger and urgently need to be vaccinated.

No child should have to suffer with this deadly and unnecessary disease - not when two doses of a measles vaccine (what a child needs to be fully protected and immunised) costs just $1.

Please donate now and help immunise and care for Samoan children.

About us

We feed hungry bellies, give kids safe drinking water, immunise children against disease, help kids go to school, and protect children from abuse. With the help of supporters like you, we achieve amazing, life-changing results for children.

Use of funds

Your life-saving donation will provide urgently needed measles vaccines for children, as well as essential medical equipment such as syringes, safety boxes, tents and vaccine carriers.

Help protect Samoan children like Senerita  9 December 2019

Posted by: UNICEF New Zealand

Nine-year-old Senerita receives a measles vaccination in Leauvaa Village, as part of a UNICEF-supported National Vaccination Campaign.

Behind her is a cold box bearing a UNICEF logo. Cold boxes play a vital role in maintaining the cold chain, a series of temperature controls necessary to maintain vaccine potency from manufacture through inoculation.

We won't stop until every child in Samoa is safe and protected from this dangerous and completely preventable disease.
