Over 1.5 million children die every year from vaccine-preventable diseases. With your help, we can save them.
Right now, children around the world are fighting a dangerous, powerful enemy that they have no chance of defeating on their own – disease.
Measles, pneumonia and diphtheria are some of the biggest killers of children under five. And measles is leading the charge with a terrifying global increase in outbreaks. Cases of this deadly disease have risen by 300% this year alone.
There can be no more casualties. Unicef is declaring War on Disease. We can defeat it with you on our side.
Vaccines are safe and cheap.
Vaccines are our greatest weapon against disease. Vaccines save more than five lives every minute of every day and are cheaper than ever. It takes just two quick injections to protect a child from measles for life.
Unicef already helps vaccinate almost half the world’s children but we need your help to reach more. Last year alone, 89 countries reported an increase in measles cases. Unless we act now, the situation will only become worse and measles will continue to spread.
Every child should survive, thrive and fulfil their potential – this is something worth fighting for.

How will my donation help children?
Your money will help support Unicef’s work to vaccinate children around the world.
We help deliver campaigns to vaccinate children all over world. Nothing – not even conflict or natural disasters – will stop us. We provide equipment to keep vaccines cold and effective so they can be sent to the most hard-to-reach places. We support training for health workers on how to administer vaccines and store them.
Between 2000 and 2017, Unicef worked with governments and partners to vaccinate more than 2 billion children –with vaccinations saving up to 3 million children’s lives every year.
