    UNICEF is the world’s leading children’s organization, saving and improving children’s lives in over 150 countries around the world through health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEF is working to reduce the number of preventable childhood deaths to zero through a variety of low-cost, high impact interventions to help children survive and thrive, focusing on:

    health & nutrition
    UNICEF provides healthcare to young children and their mothers to make sure every child gets a healthy start in life.  UNICEF is a global leader in child immunization, providing vaccines to 40% of the world’s children, and is the world’s largest provider of insecticide-treated mosquito nets which help protect children and families from malaria.

    clean water

    UNICEF provides clean water, sanitation and hygiene education to children and families in more than 90 countries worldwide. It works with partners to distribute oral rehydration salts to prevent deadly dehydration, trains teachers, community and health workers to educate children about safe water and proper sanitation, and distributes hygiene kits during crises to keep diseases at bay.

    nutrition

    Malnutrition keeps children trapped in the cycle of poverty and plays a role in the majority of the deaths of children under five. Malnourished children are too weak to fight off illness, and they often become physically and mentally stunted. UNICEF supplies children the proper nutrition they need to grow into healthy and productive adults.

    education

    UNICEF creates unique ways to make education accessible to all children. In Ethiopia, it built migrating schools that follow the pastoral rhythms of a nomadic community. In Afghanistan – where the Taliban forbidden females to attend school – UNICEF set up literacy centers so that all children can get the education they deserve.

    emergency relief

    Each year, UNICEF aids children and families affected by hundreds of emergencies around the world. UNICEF was created after World War II to help children living in war–ravaged areas; today it continues to be the leader in emergency and disaster relief for children. It provides food, water, shelter, protection, and psychosocial care. The organization also works to reunite children with their families and care for those who are orphaned.
