A UNICEF PARTNERSHIP TO ERADICATE POLIO

Afghanistan is one of the last countries in the world where polio continues to be a problem.

2 drops of vaccine – every time, for children up to 5 years can prevent the decease.

To create awareness about the importance of vaccination MMCC developed an educational show where two evil polio ‘snakes’ are killed by the vaccinator.

In 2017-2018 MMCC’s mobile team of artists made 150 Polio shows and conducted 100 Polio Awareness workshops.

MMCC's Polio Awareness activities reached total 80,702 children, youth and community members in 10 provinces of Afghanistan

Where security allowed it, a team of the AECC Circus kids made an entertaining circus show as part of the full performances.
