Children across the Caribbean are in immediate danger
Right now up to 10 million children across the Caribbean are at risk as Hurricane Irma has devastated homes, schools and hospitals. Hurricane Irma is the strongest Atlantic storm ever recorded, and children and families across the region have faced extreme winds, flooding, landslides and storm surges.
With roads, homes and schools destroyed, essential services have been cut off. Children in the Caribbean urgently need essential supplies like clean water to stop the spread of deadly diseases and prevent loss of lives.
Donate today and help keep vulnerable children safe
Whenever or wherever disaster strikes, Unicef responds rapidly to deliver clean water, emergency food and medicine to help keep vulnerable children safe.
Right now Unicef has teams on the ground ready to protect children affected by Hurricane Irma by delivering emergency supplies including water purification tablets, hygiene kits, life-saving food, medicine and tents for families whose homes have been destroyed.
Your gift will go directly to help children and families in the Caribbean affected by Hurricane Irma. By donating today, you can help us save children’s lives.
Donating by phone
If you’re in the UK and would prefer to make a donation to our Hurricane Irma appeal by phone, you can call our dedicated donation line: 0300 330 5699.
For the first 12 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go to children across the Caribbean affected by Hurricane Irma. After that they will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund. 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 the Children’s Emergency Fund.
