The first 1,000 days of life is a critical stage of growth and development for every child. It is a time of great vulnerability and great opportunity.
Yet for so many children mere survival is a struggle. Twelve children aged under five die every minute. Nearly all of these deaths are preventable.
Many more fail to develop properly due to crippling poverty.
What happens in the first 1,000 days of a child's life has a lifelong impact.
By making a monthly donation as a UNICEF Global Parent, you will help more children survive their first 1,000 days of life, and give them the best start possible with:
- Clean Water and Sanitation
- Food and Nutrition
- Protection from harm
UNICEF Global Parents support children at every stage of early life.
Your small monthly donation will make a difference every day.
