The International Cricket Council (ICC) began a fundraising campaign to help UNICEF with the COVID-19 emergency response in South Asia.

Good initiative at the inaugural WTC Final

The campaign was launched as part of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Cricket for Good initiative at the inaugural World Test Championship Final, which is being held in Southampton from June 18 to 20.

Lack of Life-saving treatment

COVID-19 has caused damage on South Asia, home to roughly two billion people and more than a quarter of the world’s children. The recent increase of COVID-19 in the region has outstripped governments’ ability to deliver life-saving treatment and crucial services due to its sheer size and rapidity.

“As part of its COVID-19 response, UNICEF works closely with governments and partners in the region reaching families with information and technical support on health, child protection and education, water, sanitation, and hygiene as well as support in vaccine rollout,” said the ICC in a release.

“ICC’s support to UNICEF at this critical time will harness the power and reach of cricket, one of the world’s most popular sports, to safeguard the lives and futures of children”

“As part of the campaign, ICC will leverage its audience base on its digital channels to contribute to UNICEF.”
