How is UNICEF Helping the Fight Against Coronavirus?
Since early January 2020, UNICEF has been preparing for and responding to Coronavirus.
We have been working closely with WHO, governments and our partners to stop the transmission of the virus, protect the most vulnerable, reduce mortality and minimize its effects in health and social services
This is a global pandemic, which will hurt refugees, displaced persons and children living in poverty the most.
Please help us deliver life-saving medical supplies, protective equipment and hygiene supplies to the world’s most vulnerable people.
