Children in Gaza are in desperate need.

An unprecedented number of humanitarian emergencies are unfolding around the world. You can help make a difference by starting a fundraiser for UNICEF Australia. 

When war breaks out, or disaster strikes, children and their families lose their homes, schools and often their loved ones. And their access to food, water and health care are affected. 

UNICEF responds to hundreds of emergencies every year. With the sheer scale of our infrastructure and long-term development work around the world, we can act quickly, delivering lifesaving help to children in just 48 hours.  

We can't stop emergencies from happening, but with your help, we can ensure that more children not only survive but thrive in future.

100% donor funded

People often think UNICEF is funded by the United Nations — but we’re not. From emergency relief to long-term development solutions, all our work is funded by the voluntary generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
