Help us Change the Formula

Coronavirus is the biggest global crisis for children since World War Two.

6000 children could die every day in the next six months as coronavirus weakens national health systems and disrupts vital services.

Formula E and Unicef have joined forces to focus on keeping children around the world health and ensuring they aren’t missing out on vital education in the face of coronavirus.

The impact of a large-scale outbreak on children, especially poor and vulnerable children, has been immense. Coronavirus threatens children already weakened by war, disease, hunger and poverty, whose very survival depends on health care, life-saving food, clean water and medical supplies. New research shows that 1.2 million children could die over the next six months due to the reduction of services – that’s a staggering 6000 children a day, or a child every 15 seconds.

Help us protect these vulnerable children and their families. Please donate now.

How your donation helps

Unicef has been working closely with governments and the World Health Organization (WHO) since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. Your donations will help to limit the spread of the virus, protect keyworkers, and reduce the impact on some of the world’s most vulnerable children and families.

Our work includes:

  • providing medical supplies to the frontline, such as surgical gloves and protective equipment
  • health care support for vulnerable communities
  • soap and clean water facilities
  • access to education and child protection services
  • handwashing campaigns and sharing information on how communities can best protect themselves.

Your donation can make a real difference. Just £30 could provide a full kit to protect a health-worker on the frontline, including gloves, masks and coveralls, while just £43 could help provide 1,680 pairs of disposable gloves for health workers.

Please donate now

For the first 6 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go towards funding Unicef’s work to support children affected by coronavirus. After that donations will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, to save and protect children in emergencies around the world, including coronavirus 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 one off or monthly gift will also go to our Children’s Emergency Fund.
