Why donate to UNICEF?

In the past year, UNICEF has responded to over 400 crises worldwide, including emergencies in Gaza, Sudan, and Syria. This work is only possible because of the generosity of people like you.

Every child deserves a chance, and your charitable donation ensures we can be there for them when it matters most. Your support helps us:

  • Provide Urgent Relief: Delivering medical supplies, shelter, life-saving food, safe water, and vaccines to children in immediate need.
  • Prepare for Emergencies: Storing supplies in areas likely to face crises due to climate change or political instability.
  • Create Long-term Solutions: Ensuring funds are available to build safe environments for children to play, learn, and receive medical care.

But we can’t do it alone. Your act of charity turns compassion into action. With your support, you ensure we can always be there for every child, whenever and wherever they need us.

Voices of impact: how donors like you are helping children

I was once a victim of a crisis. The experience was tough. The man who accommodated us treated us nicely. I know there are a lot of people out there who need help daily. To me, it doesn't matter whether you have all or not. With the little you have; you can put a smile on someone else's face.

For Every Child, Results – Your Compassion in Action

Every child deserves a chance, and UNICEF is dedicated to making that a reality. Established in the aftermath of World War II, UNICEF has always prioritized one thing: reaching children in need, no matter where they are.

Today, our mission remains unchanged. In partnership with governments, local charities, and organizations, we work tirelessly in some of the world’s toughest places to reach the most vulnerable children. We strive to save their lives, protect their rights, and ensure they grow up safe, healthy, and educated. We aim to give them the childhood they deserve and a fair chance to fulfill their potential.

We are UNICEF, standing for every child, everywhere. And with your support, we will never give up.

Your monthly gift, a lifeline for children facing the toughest challenges.
