The United Nations Children's Fund – UNICEF – is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind -- to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child's path.
Putting children first in more than 190 countries and territories worldwide, UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization by providing health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. Together we are working toward the day when no children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood. Through this, we believe that we can, together, advance the cause of humanity.
