Why are Gifts in Wills so important to UNICEF?

The world’s children are facing unprecedented crises. 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 children 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, also known as a bequest, something we hope you will consider too.

“I've always travelled and have seen the work of UNICEF on the ground in places like East Timor. When I compare the experiences of those children with that of my own grandchildren here in Australia, it's literally worlds apart. No basic necessities, or opportunities to change their future. At my age I feel it's responsibility as a global citizen to give back. I want to instil a sense of global awareness in my grandchildren. That's why I've remembered UNICEF in my Will.”
