The gift of a lifetime

The world’s children are facing an unprecedented crisis. Their rights are being violated,
they’re being displaced by war, facing famine, drought and natural disaster. And all against
a backdrop of shrinking Government support for foreign aid. But there is hope.

Today, generous UNICEF supporters are transforming the lives of vulnerable children here in
Australia and all over the world, because of a decision they made, sometimes many years ago. That decision was to support UNICEF Australia with a gift in their Will, something we
hope you will consider.

Frequently asked questions


“I was in Holland during the war, during the German occupation. The last winter was worst of all. Food was scarce and whatever there was went to the troops. 

“I can testify that UNICEF means so much to children, because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II. There’s a big difference between dying of starvation and malnutrition, of course, but I was very, very undernourished. All the local shops were turned into relief centres. I was one of the beneficiaries with the other children. I’ve known about UNICEF all my life.

"I became a UNICEF goodwill ambassador in 1988 and visited Ethiopia. I went with so many people telling me how harrowing and dreadful it would be to see the extent of the suffering, the death and the despair. I saw children in an advanced state of malnutrition. But I also witnessed how much is being done to help and how just a small amount of aid can assist in treating the sick, irrigating the land and planting new crops. I came to realise that Ethiopia’s problems are not insoluble if only the world will give a little more."
