Season’s greetings from Acting UNICEF Representative to Ethiopia Patrizia Di Giovanni.
Read her full message below.
UNICEF wishes a joyful, peaceful and charitable holiday season!
At this time of year, let us not forget the children who are in desperate need for food, shelter, and other basic necessities; boys and girls, who are not able to attend school, whatever the reason may be; children, who have been neglected, discriminated, orphaned, abused and violated of their rights.
Let us reach out to them and give a helping hand- it does not have to be something big or we do not have to go far- we can start with our families and neighbours.
A small gesture can make a huge impact on someone’s life.
Let’s open our hearts and our homes to those that are vulnerable and in need of support, wherever they are.
‘Melkam Ye’gena Beal!’
