Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar has been roped in by Unicef to raise awareness of the need for immunisation of children in India. She says Covid-19 should not disrupt children access to life-saving childhood vaccines. "Vaccines have helped generations of children grow up in good health, safe from infectious and dangerous diseases like polio and measles. To save lives, we must redouble our efforts to vaccinate children -- particularly the most vulnerable. We must not let Covid-19 disrupt children's access to life-saving childhood vaccines," says Manushi. Earth Day 2021: Manushi Chhillar Features in a New Campaign PETA India, Encourages Everyone To Ditch Meat on the Occasion.
