UNICEF Official to Speak at Kent State Nov. 9

Posted Oct, 27, 2010

On Tuesday, Nov. 9, the United Nations Children’s Fund of Kent State University is honored to welcome the CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Caryl Stern, for a speaking engagement. Stern will speak at 6:30 p.m. in University Auditorium in Cartwright Hall. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

UNICEF, or the United Nations International Children’s Fund, is an organization within the United Nations. It is an international organization dedicated to tackling the issues that impede child survival around the world. Serving in more than 190 nations around the world, UNICEF is fighting for the survival of children through advocacy and direct relief efforts. UNICEF provides clean water, protection, education, nutrition, health care and more to the world's most vulnerable children.

The Kent State community recently raised more than $11,000 during its Haiti 10-10-10 campaign to support UNICEF relief efforts in that country.

This event is free and open to the public.
