Our impact in 2018: a snapshot of our results for children

UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories, in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the children who are most at risk and most in need.

UNICEF Australia Annual Report 2018

In 2018, UNICEF Australia helped support children affected by devastating wars, natural disasters and crises around the world, providing urgent life-saving support.

Through our long-term international development programs, we helped give some of the most vulnerable children in our region a fair chance in life by improving access to and quality of healthcare, education, clean water and sanitation, and protection from violence, abuse and neglect.

Closer to home, our advocacy efforts influenced multiple pieces of legislation which will have wide-ranging positive impacts for children in Australia and our wider region.

“I can’t thank our donors enough
for supporting this vital work.
Thank you for choosing to be there
for children in need, ensuring
they not only survive, but thrive.”

Global response

In 2018, UNICEF Australia provided nearly $16 million to support UNICEF’s global programs. We also sent expert humanitarians and raised much-needed funds in response to the earthquakes in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, the ongoing Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh, the long-term Syrian civil war, and the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, among others.

Our impact in the region

UNICEF Australia runs multiple directly supported programs in the Asia-Pacific region, across health, education, child protection, water and sanitation, and early childhood development, ensuring some of the most vulnerable children in our region have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

Our impact in Australia

In 2018, UNICEF Australia listened to and raised the opinions of children and young people with key decision-makers, whilst also providing technical advice to government through our advocacy efforts.
