Vaccinate a child

Each year 1.5 million children die from easily preventable diseases. Donate now and provide urgently needed vaccines.

About this appeal

Each year 1.5 million children die from easily preventable diseases, such as measles, pneumonia and polio. This is tragic, when you consider a vaccine starting from just a few cents can stop these children from dying.

A UNICEF health worker vaccinates 5-year-old Yousef and his 3-year-old brother Samir in Aleppo city. Immunisation is crucial for children living in war zones, as outbreaks of diseases can quickly escalate into lethal epidemics.

Sadly, it’s the children who need vaccines the most that continue to be the least likely to receive them. These are children affected by war and disaster. Children living in remote and hard-to-reach areas. And children from developing countries.

It’s urgent that we reach these children with life-saving protection. Just $25 can protect 5 children against deadly diseases.

Please donate now and provide urgently needed vaccines.

How will you help

Vaccines are the most simple, low-cost and effective way of safeguarding a child’s health. They act as a shield, protecting children and newborn babies from dangerous diseases and saving up to 3 million lives each year.

Your life-saving donation will provide urgently needed vaccines to children all around the world, from the Pacific, to the Congo, Yemen and more.
