The Greatest Need

Whether facing disasters, conflict or disease – you’ll be giving the most vulnerable children around the world the chance to survive.

About this appeal

When disaster strikes, UNICEF is there to save and protect children – no matter the circumstance. And right now, as the world battles with the COVID-19 pandemic, our life-saving work for children has never been more critical.

UNICEF is working around the clock to mobilise teams and deliver essential supplies, such as medical and hygiene goods, but in some cases the demand has risen to 100-times pre-outbreak levels. Resources are being hugely stretched.

Meanwhile, millions of children are still currently being uprooted, affected by wars, dying from preventable causes, or facing abuse. The need for your support has never been greater.

Please donate now and help save and protect the world’s most vulnerable children.
