Help keep a child safe when a disaster hits
Our Children’s Emergency Fund helps children affected by disasters and prevents significant loss of life during humanitarian crises.
Indonesia volcano and tsunami
Right now for example, hundreds have been killed and thousands affected after a tsunami hit the strait between Java and Sumatra, Indonesia on 22 December. Unicef is on the ground to accompany the authorities as they assess the impact of the latest tsunami on children.
We are already working to keep children safe and help families recover after the earthquakes and tsunami that devastated areas of Lombok and Sulawesi in Indonesia earlier this year.
Children affected by disasters like this urgently need life-saving support and supplies, such as clean water, to stop the spread of deadly diseases and prevent further loss of life.
Your donation to our emergency fund will help save and protect children whenever disaster strikes.
Children in emergencies around the world
59 million children face conflict, natural disasters and other complex emergencies in 50 countries across the world. Children are hardest hit – losing lives, families, homes and schools.
Your donation can help us reach children fleeing brutal conflict in countries like Yemen, those fleeing discrimination and violence such as the Rohingya refugees, and help children and their communities protect themselves from the impact of other natural disasters.
Your gift will go directly to our Children’s Emergency Fund to save and protect children in emergencies around the world.
