Our Children’s Emergency Fund helps children affected by disasters whenever and wherever they are. When disaster strikes, Unicef works around the clock to provide life-saving supplies to families in need.
Right now for example, Unicef is responding to the needs of refugees and migrants at the Turkish border. The youngest and most vulnerable children face harrowing journeys as they seek safety in Europe. No child should ever have to risk their life to be protected.
When disaster strikes, children can lose everything
Across the world, 50 million children face conflict, natural disasters, health crises and other complex emergencies. These situations can leave children without their homes, schools and families. Their access to shelter, food, water and medicines 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.
