Right now Unicef is on the ground protecting children in Mexico by delivering water and sanitation kits, education support and other essential emergency services. Your donation can help us reach children affected by the earthquake.

Help keep a child safe in Mexico

Right now children in Mexico are in danger after a powerful 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck on Tuesday, just two weeks after an earthquake struck the south of the country. Hundreds of people have been killed and many are missing after the earthquake toppled buildings across Mexico City. A whole school has collapsed, trapping children inside.

When earthquakes strike, access to shelter, clean water and essential medicine can be quickly cut off, putting children’s lives at risk.

Children affected by disasters like this urgently need essential supplies like clean water to stop the spread of deadly diseases and prevent loss of lives.

How will my donation help children?

Whenever or wherever disaster strikes, Unicef responds rapidly to deliver clean water, emergency food and medicine so that vulnerable children’s lives are saved.

Unicef is already on the ground in Mexico delivering essential supplies such as water and sanitation kits, and child protection and education services. We’re currently assessing the additional needs of children and are ready to respond immediately to provide life-saving emergency aid.

We urgently need your help so that we can reach every child that needs us.

By donating today, you can help us reach more children like the children affected by the earthquakes in Mexico. By donating today, you can help us save children’s lives.

For the first 12 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go directly to support Mexico’s children. 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.
