Here at home, UNICEF plays a vital role, enabling Australians to contribute to making a lasting difference to the lives of children, particularly those most marginalised.
I look forward to working with the UNICEF Australia team to further expand our partnerships, and to advance the rights and improve the lives of all children.”
