How UNICEF Works in Emergencies

With more than 11,000 staff worldwide; 350 warehouses globally; 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 a crisis arises.

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

Providing Relief to Children in Emergencies

UNICEF is a global leader in emergency response, last year reaching children in 344 humanitarian emergencies across 108 countries. We stand ready to provide aid before, during and after a crisis.
