UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to promote and protect the rights of children. When you donate to UNICEF, you contribute to their well-being through programmes that help children survive and thrive to adulthood, providing essential medicines, nutrition, vaccines, educational, health and emergency supplies. As a leading organisation working for children, UNICEF also uses its global influence to advocate for the long-term needs of children and women around the world.

Together, with your help, we can improve the lives of children in need today.
