About Us 

For Every Child

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

Before, during and after humanitarian emergencies. UNICEF is on the ground, bringing lifesaving help and hope to children and families.

And we never give up.

UNICEF’s Work for Children

We provide education, health-care, immunisation, nutrition, water & sanitation, child protection and humanitarian aid.

In emergency situations, UNICEF can respond quickly and ensure emergency supplies are on the ground within hours.

Our global supply division is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with regional hubs in Dubai and Panama. This means that no matter where disasters strike in the world, UNICEF is prepared and ready to support those in need quickly.

UNICEF Ireland is one of 33 independent, non-profit National Committees around the world that fully support UNICEF’s mission to advance the rights and well-being of children and youth. UNICEF Ireland’s role is to raise funds for UNICEF and advocate for the survival and well-being of every child, including through child rights education, in Ireland.

Whether it’s through our work with young people or government, we’re always striving to empower and equip young people with the tools they need to fight for children’s rights.

You Can Help Transform Children’s Lives

UNICEF is funded entirely by voluntary contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. We are committed to finding the best and most cost-effective ways to save children’s lives.
