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

With more than 11,000 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 and physical as well as mental health care — whenever an earthquake srikes.

UNICEF also works to reunite children with family and provides care for those who are orphaned.
