The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works in more than 190 countries and territories to put children first. UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization, by providing health care and immunizations, safe water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEF USA supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy and education in the United States. UNICEF does not endorse any brand, company, product, or service.

As the number of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases has soared, so have the needs for children and families around the world. Hundreds of millions of children are now forced to remain indoors. Parents and caregivers are working remotely whenever they can. Borders have been closed. Lives have been upended.

Contributions at the global level allow UNICEF to respond rapidly and strategically to where the needs are greatest. They give UNICEF the greatest level of flexibility to deliver timely and effective assistance to the most vulnerable children in partnership with UN agencies, governments and the private sector
