United Nations Day Celebration

Learn about UNICEF’s Critical Role in the Lives of Children, October 27, 3-5 p.m. at International House, 10 College Park.

The public is cordially invited to a free United Nations Day celebration hosted by the Davis chapter of the United Nations Association on October 27 (Sunday) from 3-5 p.m. at International House, 10 College Park.

Rosie Breen, Second Year Global Citizenship Fellow for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, is coming from San Francisco to speak on “UNICEF’s Critical Role in the Lives of Children.”  She will address each of UNICEF’s program areas – nutrition, water and sanitation, education, child protection, emergency relief, and health and HIV/AIDS – while distinguishing between emergency relief (such as the crucial humanitarian assistance for Syria’s children) and regular programming.  She will bring a number of samples of items that UNICEF uses in the field, including the amazing “school in a box” and a treated mosquito net.

As this program will take place just days before the annual Trick or Treat for UNICEF drive by Davis’ schoolchildren, teachers and students are urged to attend. Here’s a chance for some hands-on experiences with UNICEF materials and current reports from the field.  UNICEF plays a critical role in the lives of our community’s children by giving them a meaningful opportunity to make a difference for their less fortunate peers around the world. 

There will be a Q & A segment, followed by refreshments and informal conversation about the work of the United Nations’ Children’s Fund that has been so loyally supported by Davis citizens for several decades.

On October 22 the City Council will present a proclamation to declare October 24 United Nations Day with the UN flag flying at City Hall and elsewhere, and October 27-31 Support UNICEF Week in the City of Davis.
