Soccer player Pepe Reina narrates Cuchos Drop of Water(June 05, 2012)
Madrid, Spain (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
Spain and soccer player Pepe Reina have launched Cuchos drop of water, that tries to make children aware of the water shortage and how million people dont have a proper water access. The tale is narrated by Reina in Spanish and English, also including graphics, sound effects and interactive surprises.
The original idea was developed by Spanish company PlayTales, that had already provided its channels and technological capacity for the creation of Give a Day, narrated by Pau Gasol. Both tales can be downloaded through PlayTales app for iPhone and iPad, and from Google Play for other mobile devices.
Cuchos drop of water was written by Carmen Gil and illustrated by Jacobo Muñiz. This tale shows the two opposite stories of Cucho and Kía, which take place in very different realities. The pictures show the inequalities between both characters and how solidarity is important to achieve a real access to potable water all over the world.
The tale can be downloaded for $0.99 and the funds raised will support the project Gotas para Niger, which, according to United Nations is the worlds second poorest country, and has some of the worse indicator of child survival, health, education and water and sanitation.
Drops for Niger
Liverpool and Spanish Football Team player, Pepe Reina, has been the face of Drops for Niger, a project from the educational UNICEF Spains program Enrédate. Reinas image appears in educative materials of the project, and he has also encouraged students to participate in school races in support of UNICEF Child Survival programs in Niger.
Reina reinforces with this initiative his commitment in promoting programs of United Nations Childrens Fund, UNICEF.
The launch of Cucho`s drop of water takes place in the Africa Day, when UNICEF highlights the main problems that affect the continent: poverty, problems of water access, conflicts, HIV/AIDS, and violence, which are specially worrying in the Sahel, where 1 million children are at risk of death from severe malnutrition.

The worlds largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
