Sorry, we can only process donations of £1 and above due to admin costs.

Help us protect a generation from COVID-19.

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

A whole generation of children is in danger. We need your help now to save #GenerationCovid.

The impact of a large-scale outbreak on children, especially poor and vulnerable children, has been immense. Children are at risk from the disease, but also from the disruption to health and education services, impacts on caregivers, and separation from family members.

Help us protect these vulnerable children and their families. Please donate or do whatever you can 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 donation will help to limit the spread of the virus and reduce the impact on children and families.  

  • Just £30 could provide full kit to protect a health-worker, including boots, gloves, masks and coveralls to help make sure that health workers are protected in situations where they may be at risk.
  • £45.50 could help provide an emergency hygiene and water kit to help protect a whole family.

Please donate now

Your donation will go directly towards funding Unicef’s work to support children and families affected by Novel Coronavirus. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed Unicef’s funding requirements for this appeal, your gift would go to our Children’s Emergency Fund.
