Goal: 5,000 new supporters

Your email today can help us mobilize support around the world for the most urgent needs of children. Across the globe, children are living in desperate situations. They are facing issues like food insecurity, a lack of clean water, unsafe living conditions, and no access to medical care. Every voice counts, and we need yours.

Give to an Emergency

In emergencies, we put children first. We are committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable kids in the world. In response to a disaster, UNICEF helps ensure that affected children and families can get clean water, that there are safe spaces for children, that education and health services can continue, that trauma and psychosocial support are addressed and that basic humanitarian supplies are distributed.

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.
