Patron became the first dog in history to receive the title of “Good Will Dog” from UNICEF
UNICEF and representatives of Ukrainian mine sniffing dog Patron signed a Memorandum of Understanding. UNICEF and Patron will cooperate in the area of mine risk education and safety, reducing many of the risks due to war, as well as providing mental health and psychosocial support for children, adolescents, youth, their caregivers, and educators. That’s why Patron became the first dog in history to receive the title “Good Will Dog” from UNICEF.
“There is not a single child in Ukraine who does not know about Patron, the demining dog. Patron won the trust and hearts of all Ukrainians, and together with UNICEF, Patron will promote extremely important things for Ukrainian society, such as mine risk education and mental health,” said UNICEF Representative in Ukraine, Murat Sahin.
