Children lose the most in conflict. They miss out on essentials like nutrition, education and health care. They lose safety and innocence.
Donate to help children caught in conflict zones
Right now, children in conflict-affected places like Yemen, Afghanistan and Syria face the extra dangers caused by COVID-19 and a bitter winter.
UNICEF has 75 years of experience delivering life-saving supplies in more than 190 countries. Our teams are on ground, fearlessly delivering for every child, no matter what.
Help us deliver therapeutic food, warm clothing, and school supplies to children who need them most.

Harsh winter approaching for children caught in conflict
Conflict continues in northwestern Syria, forcing families to flee their homes. Across the country, more than 6 million children are in need of humanitarian assistance.
They are children like Amira’s baby, who was born in a displacement camp. Now, their baby’s home is a tent that leaks when it rains.
Despite the hardship, Amira is doing everything she possibly can to feed and protect her baby. “I sold my wedding ring to get some fuel to keep the baby warm,” she told our teams.
Winter is fast approaching in the northern hemisphere, and children and babies like Amira’s will be bitterly cold if we can’t reach them.
Please donate today to protect the futures of children in conflict. Help us deliver life-saving supplies so that no child is left behind.
Your donation could help fill a life-saving box of supplies with:
- Life-saving 'peanut butter' for $90, to bring a severely malnourished child back to health.
- Warm winter clothes for $138, to protect five children from the bitterly cold winter.
- A School-in-a-Box for $258, so 40 students can continue learning during conflict.
Every fearless delivery starts with you. With your support, UNICEF teams can go the distance to reach the most vulnerable, and remote children, no matter where they are or what they face.
Please, help by sending a life-saving box to a child in need.
Your donation will help fund UNICEF's urgent work for children wherever the need is greatest - including children in remote places and conflict areas.
