I don’t think I’ve met anyone more enthusiastic in the cyberworld than Sarah! Sarah and I first met when she sent me a request to guest post on World Moms Blog about her Preeclampsia Walk. We’ve been online friends ever since and hope to meet up this year in person!
The purpose of the journey is to experience UNICEF’s Child and Family Health Days, where they are making a difference in the child mortality rate there by providing children with Vitamin A tablets to help prevent blindness, polio and measles immunizations, deworming tablets to those who need them and insecticide treated bed nets to help prevent malaria. They will also be checking children for malnutrition.
