The kids who need us most

When you donate to the greatest need, that’s exactly where your money goes.

Currently, malnutrition is rapidly becoming an urgent humanitarian crisis across the Horn of Africa, South Sudan and Yemen, with multiple countries all facing severe food shortages.

Conflict and drought have ravaged these areas and millions of young lives are at risk as families struggle to find enough food to eat.

In South Sudan, war and a collapsing economy has left over 100,000 people facing starvation, and 5.5 million more urgently needing assistance to meet basic nutritional requirements.

Famine is looming. We must stop more little ones from starving. 

Yemen is in the grip of a deadly and fast-spreading cholera outbreak of unprecedented scale. With the national health system nearing collapse, millions of families lack access to clean water and basic health care. The crisis is having a devastating effect on children’s lives.

At least one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen from preventable diseases.

Your donation will help UNICEF treat children for malnutrition and diseases like cholera, provide immunisation services, safe water and sanitation services which prevent recurring malnutrition.
