In Africa and Around the World, UNICEF Is Changing Children's Lives
War. Drought. Famine.
- UNICEF delivers ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) to millions of children at risk of starvation across Africa, including countries hit with unprecedented food emergencies such as Somalia, South Sudan and regions of Nigeria plagued by Boko Haram
- In 2017, UNICEF reached 3.1 million children suffering from severe acute malnutrition around the world
- In Ethiopia (above), UNICEF worked with partners to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus, saving newborns from a painful, preventable death
- In Burundi, where nearly half the population has no access to safe water and is so vulnerable to disease that the life expectancy is 43, UNICEF USA and Beyoncé's BeyGood4Burundi teamed up to build new water pumps across the country
Changing lives. Saving lives. This is hope.
UNICEF takes proven, low-cost methods that save children’s lives and makes them available regardless of income, ethnicity or location.
When you support UNICEF, you give mothers and children hope for the future. And your money goes to help the children who need help most.
89% of every dollar UNICEF USA spends goes directly to programs that help kids survive and thrive.
