Unicef was created by the United Nations in December 1946, after World War II, to provide food, clothing and healthcare to European children who faced famine and disease. 

In 1953 the UN General Assembly extended Unicef's mandate indefinitely.

We now work in more than 190 countries with families, local communities, business partners and governments, to help protect children in danger.

Unicef UK was founded in 1956 and is a registered charity. 

Today, by supporting Unicef, you can protect a child in danger, transform their life and build a safer world for tomorrow’s children.
