From the photos that accompany this blog post, you’ll see that I’ve been traveling with a group of really tall men. Last week, NBA greats Dikembe Mutombo, Luc Mbah a Moute and Nick Collison were on the road with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF on a field visit to UNICEF projects in northern Kenya. They visited refugee camps at Kakuma, medical facilities in Makutano, and children’s shelters in Lodwar. polio vaccines to the children of Turkana tribesmen who without UNICEF might never see a health facility. They spoke gently, and with enormous compassion, to little girls who’ve been rescued from abuse and arranged marriages, and who now live in a UNICEF-supported boarding school. U.S. Fund for UNICEF partnership with the National Basketball Association that is bringing real change to children in places like those we visited this week. Like us, the NBA believes that every child has the right to live, learn and play. Like us, the NBA believes that ZERO children should be denied vaccinations, and education, and the opportunities to make a better life. Now back in the United States, these three guys are all determined to help spread the word. You’ll be hearing much more on this trip from all of us over the next few weeks, and we hope that you, too, will be inspired to make a difference in the lives of the world’s children. I hope you'll follow us on Twitter and "Like" us on Facebook for more updates.
