In a program expanding across India, UNICEF and IKEA provide life-saving supplements
UNICEF, August 2010
Thousands of children in India die each year from diarrhea and its complications. But an estimated 88 per cent of global deaths from diarrhea are entirely preventable if simple treatment and basic health information can be offered. In Bihar, that life-saving assistance is now being provided through the generous support of the IKEA Social Initiative, the international furniture company’s philanthropic wing, in partnership with UNICEF, as they provide zinc and oral rehydration therapy treatment.
