Clean water and hygiene for health centres in Tajikistan

Share news

With the CHF 40,000 donation from the participants and from MSD Switzerland as part of the SwissCityMarathon - Lucerne 2019, UNICEF was able to renovate the sanitary and hygienic facilities in 18 building departments and in a children's hospital in Tajikistan.

Some 64,000 mothers and their newborn babies, 4,000 children and 1,300 employees in the relevant facilities benefit from this. We say: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Due to the cancellation of this year's event, we unfortunately could not donate very much to UNICEF. Nevertheless we are allowed to transfer the complete entry fee of the 57 participants at the YesWeRun Alpenquai and donations from the online registration of a total of 900 Swiss Francs to the project "Kangaroo Mother Care" in Nepal.

We are pleased that MSD Switzerland has already agreed to support the Extra Mile for 2021. Together with your support, we can then once again make a great contribution to children around the world.

Many thanks for your contribution!
