Donate and help families affected by the pandemic.
As the pandemic continues to upend lives across the world, there have been 190 million confirmed cases of COVID-19. Tragically, more than 4 million people have died.
While the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is still unknown, in 2020 we know that children around the world had less access to education, nutritious food and healthcare as a direct result of the pandemic.
A huge surge in COVID-19 cases is putting an incredible strain on Indonesia’s healthcare system. Cases are close to reaching two million, with over sixty thousand deaths. A worrying number of COVID-19 deaths are children; alongside increasing second-hand impact on children’s education, health and nutrition.
Children and families need urgent help. Which is why UNICEF is working around the clock to secure a more child focused response and recovery to help those in dire need.
As India continues to battle its second wave of COVID-19, the country faces a critical shortage of oxygen. This is urgent treatment to help those with COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases.
UNICEF is on the ground helping to install 9 oxygen generating plants, which will help ensure vital supplies of oxygen to reach those in most need. In addition, UNICEF will also procure an additional 14 oxygen generating plants over the next months.
We need your help now.
How will my donation help?
We’ll only ever be safe, if we’re all safe. UNICEF is ensuring no one is left behind in the race to end the COVID-19 crisis. Our goal is to ensure health workers in every country are protected, and patients get the life-saving medical supplies and oxygen they need.
We need your help to deliver 2 billion vaccines, 5.6 million tests and 5.5 million treatments around the world this year. Join us for the biggest health and logistics project in history.
Just £50 could help provide a life-saving oxygen concentrator.
Our most urgent priority is to protect health workers, social workers and teachers to ease pressure on overwhelmed health systems, and ensure children are protected from harm and get them back to school.
Together, we can end this global pandemic.

Donations made to this appeal will go through UNICEF’s VaccinAid appeal, supporting UNICEF’s work to purchase and deliver Covid-19 vaccines, tests and treatment to bring an end to the pandemic in India and around the world. For the first six months, monthly donations to this appeal will go towards this work. After that, donations will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, to save and protect children in emergencies around the world, including Covid-19 and other emergencies where funds are most needed. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed UNICEF’s funding requirements for this appeal, your donation will go towards the Children’s Emergency Fund.
