Why are Gifts in Wills so important to Unicef?

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 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.
