Unicef works with families, communities and governments to save and change children’s lives, providing life-saving food, vaccines, clean water, education and protection for children in danger. We create opportunities for young people to participate and make their voices heard in society.
Thousands of children die every day from diseases like malaria, cholera and typhoid that are easy to prevent. Unicef is the world’s leading supplier of vaccines and mosquito nets for children and families around the world. We provide vaccines for one in three of the world’s children, protecting them from preventable diseases.
Unicef is poised to react rapidly for children wherever and whenever an emergency strikes. We respond to around 300 emergencies for children each year. From supplying life-saving aid to children affected by the Nepal earthquake, to providing support to child refugees, Unicef will not stop until the world is a safer place for every child.
Unicef UK receives no funding from the UN budget. We rely entirely on voluntary contributions and are only able to carry out our vital work thanks to the contributions of our supporters.
Today, by supporting Unicef, you can protect a child in danger, transform their life and build a safer world for tomorrow’s children.
