Every day a child needs your help to survive, go to school and be protected. Act now.
Every day, children need things we take for granted, whether that‘s vaccination, nutrition, education or feeling safe.
|© UNICEF/NYHQ2012-0356/Olivier Asselin Saamatou is 7 months old. She is malnourished. And living in Burkina Faso means there’s a 1 in 10 chance she’ll die before reaching her fifth birthday. With your support she can grow up healthy, stay protected from harm and go to school.|
Right now 16,000 children still die each day, largely from preventable causes, 58 million children are missing out on their right to go to school, more than 168 million children aged 5 to 17 are trapped in child labour and by the end of the day, over 650 children will be newly infected with HIV.
In over 190 countries around the world we fight daily to change this. We work against child malnutrition, diseases and abuses, helping all the children to get the basic education and rights so that they not only survive but thrive. From immunizing children against preventable diseases, to rebuilding schools after disasters, we do whatever it takes to reach every child who needs us.
But to do this we need the help of supporters like you. Please make a monthly donation today - just a few dollars a month can help save lives, protect childhoods and give children the chance to go to school.
Your regular donation will help support these programmes:
