Joint Statement by U.S. Fund for UNICEF President & CEO Caryl M. Stern and UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake

NEW YORK, 25 March 2016 – “It is with great sorrow that we mourn the loss of our dear friend and former colleague Sascha Pinczowski and her brother Alexander. They were among those killed this week during the tragic events in Brussels.”
“Sascha served as an intern at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in 2014, dedicating her time to helping the world’s children. Together with her U.S. Fund and UNICEF colleagues, we are heartbroken and share our deepest condolences with Sascha and Alexander’s family, friends and loved ones.”

UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
