In a one-of-a-kind television event this Sunday, July 6, CNN will examine why 26,000 children die every day from preventable causes and what UNICEF is doing to save these young lives. Hosted by CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, “The Survival Project: One Child at a Time” will air at 8 and 11 pm (ET).
This historic broadcast will highlight four areas where UNICEF demonstrates its remarkable on-the-ground expertise in doing whatever it takes to save a child:
- Child protection in Iraq
- Water and sanitation in Laos
- HIV/AIDS in Peru
- Child survival interventions in Ethiopia
Leading experts in each of these key areas will contribute to a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Gupta.
“The Survival Project: One Child at a Time” is a chance to get a first-hand look at the plight of millions of children around the world, struggling each and every day for survival. We hope you’ll tune in.
