We plan great events like the Trick or Treat festival and World Water Week to raise funds and awareness for the humanitarian work UNICEF does to benefit children and families around the world.
UNICEF was established in 1946 as the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund. In 1950, its mandate was broadened to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries everywhere. UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations system in 1953, when its name was shortened to the United Nations Children's Fund." (www.unicef.org)
