Giving your baby a healthy start is relatively easy here in developed countries. In Ireland we receive birth certificates when babies are born, they get vaccinations to keep them safe from disease and can grow up healthy and happy.

However, not all babies and mothers have the same chance.

From Arrival to Survival

We help protect children and babies from life-threatening diseases by giving them immunisations. In fact, UNICEF is the world’s largest supplier of vaccinations.

By supporting UNICEF you can give every child the chance to a healthy and happy childhood.

We also provide children with nutritious food and milk, as well as advising mothers on the right nutrition for their babies.
