Help Children Survive and Thrive

Your donation today will make a real and lasting difference to a child’s life. From nutrition to education, emergency response to development work, your support will change a child’s life and help build a better world for everyone.

We rely entirely on voluntary donations like yours to fund our vital work for children. Support from people like you, ensures UNICEF can work in the world’s toughest places to reach the most disadvantaged children and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. Across 190 countries and territories, we do whatever it takes to help children survive, thrive and fulfil their potential.

We make sure more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We get things done and we never give up. Before, during and after humanitarian emergencies, UNICEF is on the ground, bringing lifesaving help and hope to children and their families.

Join us and help make sure every child survives, thrives and fulfills their potential.

Saving Children’s Lives

When Doa’a arrived to our therapeutic feeding centre in Yemen, she was suffering from pneumonia and severe acute malnutrition – the most dangerous form of malnutrition. She was so weak she couldn’t even breastfeed. Without treatment, a child as weak as Doa’a will quickly die.

Thanks to our supporters, UNICEF teams are on the ground ready to help. Doa’a was given immediate treatment of fortified milk to help her regain her strength and medicines to treat her pneumonia. Soon she was strong enough to go home.

Happy again and restored to health, baby Doa’a is now back in the care of her parents. Her recovery was made possible because of the kind donations, which paid for the fortified milk and medicines needed to save her life.

“It is enough for me that my daughter returned to the house alive and that she smiles and laughs,” Doa’a’s father Hussein added happily.

I was doubtful that Doa’a would return home,” Zahra, Doa’a’s mother told us. “The health workers at the centre gave my daughter medicine and baby formula and now she is all right.”

Join our Community of Global Parents

When you sign up to give a monthly donation to UNICEF, you are making the amazing decision to become a Global Parent. You are joining a community of people who are providing for, protecting and defending the world’s most vulnerable children. Day in and day out, we will work together to make sure every child has a fair chance in life.

Every day around the world children are facing threats of violence, persecution, hunger and disease. Malnutrition is still the leading cause of death for children under five globally. It kills more than 3 million children every year – that is one child every 10 seconds.

By becoming a Global Parent, you’ll help us achieve our mandate and ensure that no child goes without food, clean water, medicine, education or warm clothing. Your monthly support will ensure children get the help they need when they need it most. You will help equip our teams so they they can respond quickly and efficiently when disaster strikes to ensure children are safe and protected.
