Why Become a Monthly Donor

At UNICEF we work to ensure that children are protected from disease, war, famine and danger. With your monthly support, we can work to deliver long-term aid strategies, which will make a lasting difference to the lives of children and their families.

How Your Donation Can Help Children:

  • With €15 a month, you can provide enough vaccines to give 7 children life-long protection from polio and measles each month.
  • With €21 a month, you can give a year’s supply of disease free drinking water to 25 children.
  • With €30 a month, you can supply enough peanut paste to save the lives of 38 children facing starvation every year, that’s 3 young lives saved every month.

Help Save Yemen’s Children From Hunger

It’s almost six years since the conflict began, but Yemen remains the most dangerous place in the world to be a child. Every day, children in Yemen are battling to simply survive.

Over 12 million children are already in need of humanitarian assistance. 400,000 children are severely malnourished.

If the food and medicine they need doesn’t arrive, these children will likely die. Six years of war has turned millions of childhoods into a waking nightmare. Malnutrition, disease, conflict, displacement, injury and even death are daily trials for Yemen’s children.

The situation for children in Yemen has never been more dire and now COVID-19 is furthering their devastation.

But you can help.

By becoming a monthly donor with UNICEF Ireland, you can send vital supplies, like food, clean water and medicine to children in Yemen.

You will help give emergency therapeutic food to severely malnourished children. You can provide soap and clean water to protect children and families from illness.

You can help give vital medicines, like antibiotics, to help save children who cannot access a doctor or hospital.

More than anything, you will stand with children in these dark times, and give them hope for a better life, now and in the future.

Protect Children in Afghanistan

Afghanistan is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Decades of political upheaval, continuing violence and COVID -19, have left 12.9 million children in urgent need.

Widespread food shortages, COVID-19, drought, and crippling winter weather are putting children at risk.

Right now, the winter in Afghanistan is severe. Temperatures regularly drop below freezing. For the 3.5 million people forced from their homes, this could be devastating.

Without winter clothing, blankets and fuel, hungry children will struggle to survive.

Thanks to the generosity of our Global Parents, UNICEF is providing emergency food, winter clothing and supplies and medical support to the most vulnerable. But the numbers of children that need help are huge, and the situation worsens all the time.

The situation for children in Afghanistan is desperate, with estimates that 1 in 2 children will face malnutrition in 2022.

We cannot abandon the children of Afghanistan.

Please become a Global Parent today and help children in Afghanistan to survive.

How Does UNICEF Help Children?

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories across the world, helping millions of children every day. We make sure more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, and protected than any other organisation.

Even in war torn countries like Yemen and Syria, we have teams on the ground making sure that children get the help they need – no matter what.

UNICEF is funded entirely by voluntary donations and rely on the kindness of people like you to fond our life saving work for children.

So please become a Global Parent today and give the most vulnerable children in the world your support.
