Right now multiple emergencies threaten children’s lives: Hurricanes Irma and Maria in the Caribbean, flooding in South Asia, earthquakes in Mexico and other disasters around the world. UNICEF stands ready to provide water, shelter, protection and health care — before, during and after these crises. Last year, UNICEF responded to 344 humanitarian emergencies in 108 countries — hurricanes, earthquakes and conflicts across the globe. With more than 13,000 staff worldwide and 350 warehouses globally, UNICEF stands ready to provide food, water, shelter, protection and health care — before, during and after a crisis.
The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) works in more than 190 countries and territories to put children first. UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization, by providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. Together, we are working toward the day when no children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood
