UNICEF Humanitarian Appeals (2013)

DFATD Contribution: $4,000,000

March, 2013 - Founded in 1946, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is mandated by the UN General Assembly to protect the rights of children and women in developing countries through its development and humanitarian assistance programming. In humanitarian emergencies, UNICEF's activities include the provision of: commodities to treat severe acute malnutrition; safe drinking water, sanitation facilities and hygiene programming; emergency education; basic healthcare; and, protection services for children and women.

With Canada's support, UNICEF's 2013 emergency operations in Burma, Chad, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Pakistan and Somalia aim to provide protection and assistance to an estimated 9 million people affected by conflict, food insecurity, political instability and drought.
