Make an impact

Right now, children in places like Yemen, Afghanistan and Ukraine need food, shelter, health care and education. UNICEF is on the ground around the world doing whatever it takes to reach these children, wherever they are, whenever they need us.

Our teams act swiftly to defend children from childhood diseases by vaccinating them. We provide textbooks and backpacks so they can go to school. But we simply could not do this without donations from people like you. 

For more than 75 years, UNICEF teams have worked tirelessly in times of peace and conflict, so we can proudly say that we are there for every child in need. 
 
You can help to make sure no child is left behind.

Help us deliver therapeutic food, emergency supplies and school equipment to children who need them most.

Donate to help children caught in crisis

Afghanistan is one of the most difficult places in the world to be a child. Families are facing three crises at once; conflict, drought and disease outbreaks. 

Then in June, a powerful earthquake struck eastern Afghanistan, in the province of Paktika. More than 1,000 people are believed to have been killed, many more injured. Homes have been destroyed.   

On top of this disaster, 1 million children are at risk of dying due to severe acute malnutrition without immediate treatment across the country. 

Our teams are on the ground in Afghanistan providing health and nutrition support, medical care and water and sanitation supplies to affected families. 

When emergency strikes, UNICEF can deliver life-saving help to children in just 48 hours in more than 190 countries. And long after emergencies fade from the headlines, our teams stay for children.
