Task 6 (Con’t) <ul><li>UNICEF has organised the (10) “Friends of UNICEF” donation programme to help these East Timorese children, and (11) this offers the best start to these children’s lives . With a donation of (12) HK$1200, 166 children can be given full doses of Vitamin A for one year . (13) This can help prevent blindness and resist disease . </li></ul>
