Let's come together this Africa Day to support the most vulnerable

AfricaDay

 

You can help children and families in sub-Saharan Africa affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. All proceeds raised through the campaign will be donated in full to the United Nations World Food Programme and UNICEF, who are supporting COVID-affected communities across Africa.

Provide a lifeline with vital supplies

In this unprecedented global crisis, the poorest and most vulnerable communities are the most at risk. Together we can give them a fighting chance with access to the basics: clean water, food, soap, gloves, and masks. Your donation helps UNICEF and the World Food Programme deliver life-saving health supplies and nutritious food.

Protect children and families from the worst of this crisis

COVID-19 isn’t just overwhelming fragile health systems, it’s attacking children’s education and the way families earn their living and take care of themselves. Right now, UNICEF and World Food Programme staff are on the ground making sure that we do everything in our power to support children and families through this crisis.

Please protect the most vulnerable by making a donation today

Any donation, no matter how small, can help children and communities.

For example:

  • $5 can provide 20 bars of soap
  • $18 can provide essential food for a family of 5 for 1 week
  • $49 can help provide 150 sachets of therapeutic food to help a child recover from malnutrition

You can make a difference

   

- When you join us in supporting UNICEF and WFP, your donations go further

- UNICEF operates the world’s largest humanitarian warehouse, and we rush vital supplies where they are needed or procure locally in bulk, which keeps costs low so your donation can help more children.

- The World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger and serving as the logistics backbone for the global COVID-19 response, operating an average of 70 aircraft, 20 ships, and 5,000 trucks each day to reach those most in need, wherever they are.

- We are there before, during and after a crisis. Just saving a life is not enough. We aim to learn lessons as we go, making life healthier, better and fairer for everyone.
