Protect Children in Ukraine

“The past eight years of conflict have inflicted profound and lasting damage to children on both sides of the line of contact. The children of Ukraine need peace, desperately, now.”

Life for 7.5 million children caught up in the crisis in Ukraine is deteriorating by the minute.

Children have been wounded and killed. Many are tramuatized by the violence around them.

Schools, hospitals and orphanages have all come under fire. Homes have been damaged or destroyed. Medical supplies are running low, and supply chains are stretched.

Over 2 million people have fled to neighbouring countries – including 500,000 children.

The situation for children is critical but your help can make all the difference.

With the help of our Global Parents, UNICEF is working to scale up life-saving programs for children.

This includes trucking safe water to conflict-affected areas, and prepositioning health, hygiene and emergency education supplies as close as possible to communities where the conflict is most intense.

In Belarus, Moldova, Poland, and Romania, UNICEF is activating the ‘Blue Dot’ safe spaces. These will provide crucial support to families on the move. Our teams are helping to identify unaccompanied and separated children and focus on family reunification and protection.

But the needs of children are great, and the future is so uncertain. Please become a Global Parent today and help protect children in Ukraine.

Your help could make all the difference to these children, whatever they face next.

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. 500,000 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.
