Rag Dolls for Vaccinations!

The Umbra Institute’s community engagement programs, coordinated by Director Anna Selberg, got some well-deserved recognition this week. An article in the regional newspaper La Nazione highlighted the contributions of Umbra student Melissa Martinez and intern Paola D’Amora to a Unicef campaign. The campaign consisted of sewing Raggedy Ann-style rag dolls, which will then be sold in a nationwide effort to fund Unicef vaccinations in the developing world. Kudos to Martinez, D’Amora, and Selberg!
