We Could Not Do What We Do Without You

In 2017, millions of children and young people were trapped in emergencies across the globe. But you helped us make a difference for these children.


Your generous support helped UNICEF save lives and futures in some of the toughest places on earth.





With your help in 2017, UNICEF vaccinated 13.6 million children against measles, treated 2.5 million children for severe acute malnutrition, brought safe water to nearly 30 million people and helped 5.5 million children keep learning. 


Thank you for supporting UNICEF's work to reach every child in emergencies.
