A legacy gift of any size will help save and change children's lives.

Gifts in Wills are vital for our work to keep children safe around the world; whether they are in danger from malnutrition, or in need of essential vaccines to protect them from disease. They allow us to respond rapidly when emergencies strike, and send out life-saving supplies like water containers, nutrition supplements and mosquito-nets.

Whatever the size of your legacy gift, it will reach the children who need it most. Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We work in more than 190 countries around the world and have done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect children than anyone else in history.

Your legacy will help us be there for every child. Together we can make sure that children have a safer future and the chance to be the best that they can be.
