How does UNICEF help Children in Emergencies?
UNICEF has the global authority to influence decision-makers, we work with local governments to change laws and make a long-term difference for children. We also work on the ground, making a difference in the day-to-day lives of children, families and communities. We provide children with healthcare and immunization, clean water, nutrition and food security, education, emergency relief, protection and more. So when disaster strikes, we can move quickly to save and safeguard children, return them to school, and help families re-establish their lives.
