By leaving a gift in your will, you’ll leave children with something to smile about.

Thanks to your help, UNICEF works to save and protect the world’s most needy children. When you leave a gift to UNICEF in your will, you help both today’s and tomorrow’s children. With over 70 years of experience you can trust that any gift you leave will be used in the most efficient way possible.

Together our work will continue until every child is safe and healthy.

These are children like Assia who at just 10 years old was forced to flee her home from the violence in the Central African Republic. “All the kids were crying and the grandmothers were praying” she told us. “We left everything in the town.”

Now she lives with her grandmother in a returnee site in Chad. They were in desperate need of assistance when the UNICEF team met them.

“We were given books and some toys to play with” she says. “They built us schools and gave us mats aswell. Before we had to go all the way to the school to get our water, now they have built a water pump very nearby and we can wash ourselves.”

Legacy donations support our ongoing work to achieve a real difference for the world’s most vulnerable children, helping fund long-term projects that may take many years to complete, but that will save lives and create countless opportunities for children.

See below some examples of how your gift might help.

  • A gift of €1,000 could help provide 3 water pumps which will provide clean, safe water day after day. It’s a really great for girls, who often walk long, gruelling miles to fetch water every day. With safe water nearby, they are free to focus on school.
  • A gift of €5,000 is enough to provide 26 teachers and over 1,000 children with everything they need to go back to school and get an education even in times of crisis.
  • A gift of €10,000 is enough to provide 7 tents to protect children when a crisis hits. Under its protection, children uprooted by emergency or crisis can eat a nutritious meal, receive health care, go to school or sleep safely.
