UNICEF teams are working around the clock to save as many lives as we can as fast as we can. But without more supplies of therapeutic food and medicine, our best efforts will not be enough. We have less than half of the funds we need to get the job done.
1.4 million children are severely malnourished and at imminent risk of death.
We cannot do this without you. Please give generously now.
Your donation will help fund UNICEF's emergency response for children in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan and Nigeria. In the unlikely event that we receive more funds that we need to respond to these massive emergencies, UNICEF will direct your donation to similar emergency programs.
From every dollar donated to UNICEF Australia in 2016, 72 cents went directly to programs that support children, while 21 cents were invested in fundraising to support more programs and 7 cents covered the essential costs of our office, staff and administration.
