Our Children’s Emergency Fund helps children affected by disasters whenever and wherever they are.
Right now for example, Hurricane Dorian has caused devastation in the northern Bahamas. Houses, schools and hospitals have collapsed. Over 18,000 children are estimated to have been affected. Unicef is working around the clock to provide life-saving supplies to the families in need.
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.

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.
