But what you might not be aware of is that babies can help save lives simply by wearing Pampers.  Pretty amazing isn’t it!

 For every pack of Pampers nappies and wipes sold Pampers donates 1 vaccine against maternal and newborn tetanus with their “1 Pack = 1 Vaccine” Pampers-UNICEF campaign.

This year marks the 11th year that this fabulous campaign has been running and during that time babies around the world have helped Pampers and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus in 19 countries and with only 19 more to go, they’re halfway towards their goal of global elimination!

Thanks to the support of families, since the Pampers-UNICEF “1 pack=1 vaccine” campaign began, an estimated 500,000** newborn babies have been saved and a vaccine has reached a mother and her baby every second.

There are lots of ways that we can all support this important campaign! If you share a photo of your amazing baby with #1photo1vaccine or #PampersUNICEF, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram – Pampers® will donate the equivalent cost of one vaccine!

This year, celebrity mum and former Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh is supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign.Kimberley says: “I feel hugely honoured to be supporting the Pampers-UNICEF campaign in its 11th year. As a mum to Bobby, and expecting my second child later this year, I feel great empathy with other mothers around the world who, just as I do, want nothing more than to deliver a happy, healthy baby. The reason I’m so passionate about this campaign is that mums and dads here in the UK can make a very real difference by doing nothing more than buying the Pampers that they need for their little ones. It’s phenomenal and makes me feel very proud of what we can achieve together.

  31. Makes one more aware about Mothers in other countries and what they haven’t got that we take for granted.

  32. Such a worthwhile cause! Well done to Pampers and everyone who’s supported the campaign for all your contributions 🙂

  33. It’s a brilliant campaign. It makes me so angry nowadays that governments rely so much on them though to get things done – it’s almost as if they are passing over essential responsibilities to really vital healthcare issues?

  34. I still find it horrific that some many babies don’t have access to decent healthcare 🙁

  35. Fantastic post. Such a great campaign! Well done pampers 🙂 x

  36. My kids always had pampers, and so do my grand children.

    1. That’s great to know and means you have helped a lot of children.

  38. What a great campaign, made me realise how lucky we are to have these vaccinations so readily available

    1. It is a great campaign and it’s really nice good of them to be involved.

  39. It’s a great campaign to help little ones less fortunate as us and our own. It’s easy to lose sight of how little others have when we have so much ourselves and don’t even notice half the time.

  40. Great campaign – it’s certainly raising awareness of a subject that’s not particularly well known.

  41. I think this is such a great campaign. Helping to save lives whilst purchasing essential items is such an excellent idea!

  42. and this is why i always buy pampers
