About this appeal

Covid-19 is the biggest global crisis for children since World War Two.

A staggering 6000 children a day could die over the next six months, as Covid-19 disrupts life-saving services and rapidly deteriorates health systems and supply chains.

We must act now to save lives.

Help fight Covid-19. Donate now to UNICEF NZ and rush urgently needed soap, clean water and medical support to children and families that need it most.

Your support is needed now more than ever to help stop Covid-19 and protect families.

The impact of Covid-19 for children, especially vulnerable and disadvantaged children, is devastating.

Children who continue to struggle through war, disease, hunger and poverty, are now facing the added threat of Covid-19. Many of these children and their families have no way to protect themselves. Their very survival depends on the delivery of urgently needed aid.

Join the fight to stop Covid-19. Donate now to UNICEF NZ and help save children’s lives.

How will you help

Make a life-saving donation to UNICEF NZ and help protect children and families from Covid-19. Your support is needed now more than ever.

  • Rush urgently needed medical supplies to frontline workers, such as surgical gloves, masks, goggles and other PPE.

  • Give healthcare support to vulnerable communities, such as children and families in refugee camps or living in poverty.

  • Support countries hit the hardest by Covid-19 with essential hygiene and medical supplies and emergency response capacity building.

  • Ensure vulnerable children still have access to education and child protection services.
