UNICEF is at the forefront of efforts to reduce child mortality worldwide. Over the last 50 years, UNICEF and its partners have helped reduce the worldwide child mortality rate by more than half. Still, 21,000 children die each day from preventable causes. UNICEF and their volunteers do whatever it takes to make that number zero by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood. (...I wish) Professor Demirci Associate Professor
