UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

 

For every child, hope.

UNICEF works for a world in which every child has a fair chance in life. It has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization – over 90 million since 1990 – and is the world’s largest provider of ready-to-use therapeutic food, a high-protein paste that can bring a malnourished child back to health within weeks. UNICEF also immunizes nearly 40% of the world’s children and when a natural disaster strikes, is already on the ground and ready to act.  UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
