UNICEF responds to emergencies around the globe and has provided critical aid to victims of recent earthquakes in Indonesia, Mexico, Ecuador and Nepal.

In 2018, there were 281 climate-related and geophysical events recorded, with 10,733 deaths and more than 60 million people affected, worldwide.

UNICEF stands ready to provide both immediate and long-term necessities — food, water, shelter, protection, health care and psycho-social support — whenever an earthquake strikes.

UNICEF also works to reunite children who have been separated from their family and provides care for those who are orphaned.
