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

With more than 13,000 staff worldwide, 350 global warehouses, strategic transit hubs in Copenhagen, Dubai, Panama and Shanghai and a 24/7 emergency operations center in New York, 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.
