Help keep a child safe when a disaster hits

Whenever or wherever disaster strikes, we respond rapidly to deliver life-saving food, medicine and water so children in danger get the help they need. We rely on money from our Children’s Emergency Fund to do this.

Right now, 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.

Our Children’s Emergency Fund helps children affected by natural disasters like Cyclone Gita. Right now thousands of children are at risk as the biggest storm Tonga has ever seen caused widespread damage and flooding. Unicef is ready to respond with live-saving supplies including clean water, food and medical care for children and families who desperately need us.

We also use funds to reach children fleeing brutal conflict in countries like Syria, those fleeing discrimination and violence such as the Rohingya refugees, and to help children and their communities protect themselves from the impact of other natural disasters.

There’s never been a more challenging time for children. But by donating today, you can help us reach more children – especially where there’s little media attention but the need for help is just as great.
