The race against polio | UNICEF

World Polio Day is a day when we celebrate the health workers and volunteers who are going to great lengths to fight polio. Never before in the history of polio have so few children in so few countries contracted the crippling virus — but we cannot rest until the number of cases is zero.

When conflict broke out in Central African Republic, 14-year-old Veva fled from her now-destroyed home to a tent near the national airport in Bangui.
