Our Children’s Emergency Fund helps children affected by disasters whenever and wherever they are.

Unicef is working around the clock to provide life-saving supplies to families in need. Right now for example, it’s cyclone season and tropical storms are gathering strength and hurtling towards Bangladesh and Vietnam. In the face of climate change, Unicef is prepared to reduce the impact of extreme weather on children’s lives. We are monitoring the danger for children and ready to respond to disaster.

When disaster strikes, children can lose everything

Across the world, 50 million children face conflict, natural disasters and other complex emergencies. These situations can leave children without their homes, schools and families. Their access to shelter, food and water can be seriously affected and children are left more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation.

Unicef staff are on the ground in these emergencies providing immediate, life-saving care and supplies, as well as lasting support to help families rebuild their lives. Donate to our Children’s Emergency Fund and help us be there for children whenever disaster strikes.

How your donation helps

Your donation can help us reach children facing protracted conflicts in countries like Sudan, those fleeing discrimination and violence such as Rohingya refugees, and help children and their communities protect themselves from the potentially disastrous impact of natural hazards.

Your gift will go directly to our Children’s Emergency Fund to save and protect children in emergencies around the world.
