Klohn Crippen Berger Supports Equitable Access to Vaccines with COVAX Donation
June 23, 2021Klohn Crippen Berger (KCB) has donated to UNICEF Canada to help provide COVID-19 vaccines to low and middle-income countries around the world.
“Our employees are lucky to be located in countries where, for the most part, vaccines are free and available. We wanted to help others get similar access,” says Len Murray, KCB President & CEO.
The donation will support global vaccine-sharing initiative, COVAX, and its work to ensure fair and equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines for all countries. The initiative is co-led by the World Health Organization (WHO), Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and Gavi, with UNICEF acting as key delivery partner.
UNICEF is leading the operation to procure and deliver 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines to 92 countries, with the goal of helping at least 20% of the world’s population by the end of 2021.
