Be There For Children Living Through Disaster

In the early hours of February 6th, a series of powerful earthquakes struck Turkey and Syria.

Thousands lost their lives, while more were left injured and traumatised. Children pulled from the rubble lost everything. Their homes, their schools and some even lost family.

Musa (6) was sleeping in his bed when he was woken by the sound of screams. As he, and his family, began to flee a wall collapsed on top of him, injuring his head.

UNICEF was able to provide immediate assistance to children like Musa and their families. Within hours medicines, water and sanitation supplies and blankets were on their way to Turkey and Syria. 

All of this was possible because of regular donations. These monthly gifts allow us to plan for uncertainties and help vulnerable children immediately.

Help Children in Danger

There are more children in need of humanitarian assistance now than at any other time since the Second World War.

From war and displacement to malnutrition and disease, children are battling to survive.

While the world has never been more uncertain for children, you can make a difference today. You can help ensure that every child in need is reached, no matter where they are.

Your regular support helps UNICEF deliver life-saving aid the moment disaster strikes.

Why Become a Monthly Donor

An ongoing donation to UNICEF can make a real and life-changing difference to the lives of children living through war, famine, and conflict.

A monthly donation allows UNICEF to bulk-buy vaccines, RUTF, and other life-saving supplies at a cheaper cost. We can also pre-position aid in strategic locations around the world, ensuring that when disasters strike help is only hours away.

With your monthly support, we can work to deliver long-term aid strategies, which enable us to have staff and supplies in countries before, during and after an emergency. 

Your regular gift can make a lasting difference to the lives of children and their families.
