(NaturalNews) You never want a serious crisis to go to waste: these are the now-infamous words uttered by former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel during the early days of the currently-in-motion financial meltdown, and they are ones that ring eerily true with a new vaccination campaign taking place in Kenya. Recent reports explain that the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is taking advantage of the mass influx of refugees from Somalia into Kenya by pushing polio and measles vaccines on 300,000 Kenyan children.

Extreme famines, religious persecution, and various other factors have driven hundreds of thousands of Somalians into nearby Kenya over the past several months. Many of the refugee camps taking in these migrants are now at the brink of, or have already exceeded, their maximum capacity. But even worse, say authorities, is the fact that the mass relocation is bringing about a host of new diseases, and the need to protect the children is greater than ever.

On the surface, such concern and effort makes perfectly logical humanitarian sense. After all, who would oppose protecting children against potentially life-threatening illnesses? Unfortunately, UNICEF's plan for helping during this crisis has been birthed out of the same train of thought as that of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, whose partners have literally held women and children at gunpoint to force vaccinations on them (

Nevertheless, UNICEF says it is pushing vaccines on children at this time in order to "prevent an outbreak of disease," according to a recent Associated Press (AP) report. Refugees are potentially harboring these life threatening diseases, they say, and this is why UNICEF has announced that it will hold a two-week vaccine drive to push the shots in various parts of northern Kenya where refugees are most prevalent, including at Dadaab, the world's largest refugee camp.

UNICEF pushing for same 'Millennium Development Goals' as Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which include mass vaccinations

The United Nations (UN), which presides over UNICEF, has been on a stated mission to "end poverty" as part of its eight "Millennium Development Goals" (MDG). And this international quasi-government has reined in many organizations and foundations to help achieve its goals: the other seven of which include universal education, gender equality, child health, maternal health, combating HIV and AIDS, environmental sustainability, and global partnership. And one of the group's allies is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Why is this a big deal? Two MDGs in particular, child health and maternal health, both involve vaccinating children against diseases like measles and polio. And this does not imply vaccinating just some children, either -- it means all of them.

The Child Health Fact Sheet, for instance, clearly states that "[c]onsiderable progress" has been made in increasing measles vaccination rates among African children, as the 70 percent rate in 2000 has now eclipsed 81 percent in 2008. But the obvious goal is 100 percent, as the group is petitioning for ever-more money to fund its universal vaccine campaign (

Likewise, the Maternal Health Fact Sheet, though it does not specifically mention vaccines, talks about increasing expectant mothers' access to "reproductive health services, equipment, supplies and skilled healthcare workers." These healthcare workers will not only help pregnant women achieve delivery in a safe environment, but they will also gain an easier footing in convincing mothers that their newborns need to be immediately vaccinated in order to prevent more disease (

Both the Child Health and Maternal Health sections appear to have been designed for the purpose of decreasing sickness and mortality, as well as improving quality of life for Africans -- and on the surface, this is an admirable mission. But the devil is in the details, as one of the primary thrusts behind the UN's health initiatives is simply to get more people vaccinated.

A recent incident in Malawi, for instance, where children were forced at gunpoint to receive measles vaccines, illustrates precisely the type of "child health" that international organizations like UNICEF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are promoting ( This implies that MDGs are not optional -- in other words, they will be imposed by force if necessary.

Worse, one of the MDG's stated partnerships is with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI Alliance), whose stated purpose is to "accelerate access to vaccines, strengthen immunization systems and introduce innovative new immunization techniques." Bill Gates made his now-infamous statements about vaccinating every child on the planet, for instance, at a recent GAVI Alliance conference (

So when you put all the pieces together and read between the lines, it is clear that the MDG goal of improving the health of women and children means something entirely different than simply providing them access to healthcare options. There is a much more sinister agenda at play here that involves essentially forcing things like pharmaceuticals and vaccines on the unwitting poor for profit and political gain. And UNICEF's current efforts in Kenya appear to be just another step towards implementing universal compliance with its vaccine agenda.
