UNICEF organises charity walk for children
Hundreds of Nigerian children walked over several kilometres in Nigeria’s capital city of Abuja on yesterday, on a UNICEF-organised campaign to raise funds for orphans and vulnerable children.
The funds realised from the programme would help provide care for at least 2,000 street children.
Nigeria’s First Lady Turai Yar’Adua, who spoke after the programme, called for collaboration by the government, private organisations, non-governmental organisations, individuals and others to protect and care for vulnerable children.
