for hungry children
WE HELP GIVE EVERY CHILD THE BEST START IN LIFE
The first thousand days are the most critical in a child's life.
Unicef helps make sure babies get the nutrition they need during this vital time.
When children are malnourished, we provide emergency food
In fact, Unicef provides 80% of the world’s life-saving emergency food.
And we help families and communities keep their children healthy and well nourished, through education and by providing special supplements, supporting breastfeeding and making sure mums have enough of the right things to eat too.
By treating malnutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, Unicef has helped cut the number of children badly affected by stunting – children’s bodies and brains not growing the way they should – by nearly 100 million since 1990. But there is much more to do.
With your support, we can work towards putting an end to hunger so that every child gets the nutrition they need to grow up healthy and strong.
