Over five million children in Bangladesh are suffering from severe malnutrition.

This Eid, please give what you can to help more children in need.

“I can only manage to pay for one meal a day. And on top of that, my child is sick.”

says Mohammad Kawser, a day labourer from Tahirpur

This Eid ad Adha, include a child in your festive joy. 🌙

Just a few months after Kawser's son, Mahdi was born, severe seasonal floods hit their village, destroying most of their belongings and leaving them with limited access to food and safe drinking water. As a result, Mahdi suffered from severe malnutrition and required urgent medical attention. Thanks to the timely intervention of UNICEF-supported community health workers, Mahdi was admitted to Tahirpur Hospital. He was fed life-saving therapeutic milk that helped stabilise his condition and recover his weight. He now has the strength to smile, play, and live a better life again.

But many children in Bangladesh still need our help. For destitute parents like Kawser, who rely on daily wages, each day is a struggle. When disasters like floods strike, they struggle significantly harder.

UNICEF is working on the ground to screen children, provide life-saving therapeutic milk, and ensure health care and medical treatment to help children recover.

Let's make this Eid extra special by helping children and families like Mohammad Kawser's, who cannot afford a proper meal.

Your generosity can help UNICEF fight malnutrition and deliver life-saving therapeutic milk to children like eight-month-old Mahdi in Bangladesh.

Frequently asked questions

UNICEF was established in the aftermath of World War II to help children whose lives and futures were at risk – no matter what country they were from. The only thing that mattered to UNICEF was reaching children in need.  

The same holds true today. We work day-in and day-out, in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the children and young people who are most at risk and most in need. We work to save their lives. To protect their rights. To keep them safe from harm. To give them a childhood in which they are protected, healthy and educated. To give them a fair chance to fulfill their potential.  

We are UNICEF. We stand for every child, everywhere. And we never give up. 

UNICEF is funded entirely through voluntary contributions from governments, intergovernmental organizations, the private sector, foundations, and individuals. Thanks to donors, UNICEF makes a difference for children in need. We are active in over 190 countries and territories and have helped save more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization. We could not continue our efforts without the support and generosity of donors, and we hope you will consider joining the UNICEF family. 

UNICEF is the only UN agency that depends on voluntary contributions. UNICEF relies on voluntary contributions from public donors, businesses, foundations and individuals. The money that is raised in Bangladesh is utilized for our programmes in Bangladesh. Donations are needed to ensure UNICEF can sustain its programmes and work with partners and the Government. With a growing economy and slowdown in foreign contributions, UNICEF Bangladesh seeks your support to help ensure that every child in the country has a fair chance and start in life. 

Yes. All money that is raised in Bangladesh will support UNICEF’s work for children in Bangladesh.

UNICEF undergoes regular and extensive internal and external audits to ensure the proper use of funds. Transparent annual reporting is publicly available. UNICEF staff conduct regular field visits and monitor the progress of all UNICEF programmes.

We will be sending you regular updates in the form of e-mails, digital communication, etc., of the progress that has been made and keep you updated about UNICEF’s work in Bangladesh, in the region, and around the world.

The current scope of operations in Bangladesh does not warrant UNICEF channeling material supplies from donors. UNICEF supplies materials like vaccines, medicines, and education materials etc., which are as per the exact specifications required at the ground level and based on consultation with the Government of Bangladesh.
