How to leave UNICEF a gift in your Will

Why Thai Dang chose to leave a gift in his Will


Thai Dang was born in a remote village in Vietnam. At 13 years old, he suffered from a severe case of malaria. Just when his family thought there was nothing more that could be done, a UNICEF medical team on the ground provided him with medication that saved his life.

Thai is just one real-life example of the difference that UNICEF is making in the lives of children all around the world.  

“I know that without UNICEF, I wouldn’t have the life I have now.”

Today, Thai is passionate about giving back to UNICEF to allow for more children to be given a chance at a better future.  

With your help, UNICEF can continue to be there for every child well into the future. By leaving a gift in your Will, you will play a vital role in helping us deliver our life-changing assistance to children everywhere for generations to come.

How do I leave a gift in my Will?

When making or updating your Will, you just need to let your solicitor know your intentions. There is no obligation to let us know and you can change your mind at any time.

At UNICEF, we respect that the decision to leave a gift in your Will is special and personal. That’s why we have developed a free Gifts in Wills guide to share more information to help you consider this decision in your own time and provide a clear step by step process.

Our free guide includes information on making or updating your Will and how your legacy gift will have a lasting impact for children.
