AWARDS: UNICEF Radio wins awards for programming on children at risk

UNICEF Radio wins awards for programming on children at risk

NEW YORK, USA, 13 October 2006 ? Children affected by conflict in the Middle East and the drought in the Horn of Africa were the subjects of two UNICEF Radio stories that received prestigious broadcasting awards last night.

Not long after bombs and rockets ceased raining down on northern Israel and southern Lebanon, UNICEF Radio?s Blue Chevigny brought together two 15-year-old girls ? one from each side of the conflict ? and recorded their telephone conversation for a two-part series on how young people coped with the war.
