Our Children’s Emergency Fund helps children affected by disasters whenever and wherever they are. Right now for example, the climate crisis is putting children’s most basic rights at risk, seriously affecting their access to health, food, water, clean air, education and protection. Around the world, the growing number of extreme weather events is putting more and more children’s lives in danger.
When disaster strikes, UNICEF works around the clock to provide life-saving supplies to families in need.
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.
