UNICEF is the world’s largest provider of insecticide-treated mosquito bed nets, which help protect families from malaria.
In Mozambique alone, almost 36,000 children under the age of five will die each year (that’s about one child every fifteen minutes) as a result of malaria. Over five years, Fyffes is helping UNICEF to prevent the spread of malaria amongst orphaned and other vulnerable children in Mozambique through the distribution of mosquito nets and the support of health facilities and community projects.

This year some entries will also be brought over to primary school students in Mozambique who are also taking part and designing posters for this competition. The winning posters will be chosen by our judging panel (Artist and author Don Conroy and Dustin the Turkey). We will announce the winner on www.fyffes.com/unicef and www.unicef.ie on 13th June 2012.
