K-food stores participate in vaccine campaign: 900,000 vaccines funded

K-food stores again participated in the international vaccine campaign by Pampers and UNICEF, raising the funds for almost 900,000 tetanus vaccines for mothers and newborns.

For every Pampers product purchased at a K-food store or at a K-food store online store in October through December 2016, K-food stores and Pampers jointly donated four vaccines to UNICEF's campaign to combat tetanus. Almost 900,000 tetanus vaccines for mothers and newborns were funded through K-food stores.

Tetanus, a bacterial infection, is one of the most common causes of infant deaths in poor countries. Babies often contract the infection during delivery in unhygienic conditions. Tetanus is fully preventable by vaccination.

Thanks to the world-wide vaccine campaign by Pampers and UNICEF, more than 100 million mothers and their children have been protected against tetanus and the lives of 500,000 newborns have been saved. This was already the ninth time K-food stores participated in the vaccine campaign.

K-food stores and Pampers jointly donated €0.312 to UNICEF's campaign to combat tetanus for every Pampers product purchased in K-food stores or K-food store online stores in October through December 2016. The donation was equivalent to the cost of four tetanus vaccines. The donation may also be used to support the distribution of vaccines.

UNICEF does not support any brands or products. Pampers is a Procter & Gamble brand.
