HOW UNICEF HELPS CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD
Today, thousands of children will die from diseases that are easy to prevent. Thousands more will die because they don’t have the food they need to live and grow. And yet more will experience unspeakable violence.
UNICEF keeps children safe by providing vaccines against deadly diseases, distributing mosquito nets and by promoting safe hygiene in communities around the world. We are the world’s largest supplier of emergency life-saving food for children. And we campaign tirelessly to end violence against children.
Here are some of the most frequently questions we receive about making a donation to UNICEF.
We rely entirely on voluntary donations, so we want to make supporting UNICEF as simple as possible.

How your money saves a child's life
Your contribution to UNICEF really changes the lives of children
We're glad you're considering donating to UNICEF. Whether it is life-saving vaccines, a winter blanket or textbooks in a remote village, for your giving it is significant and provides better protection and future for children. Thanks to you they will have a better present and future.
UNICEF does not receive any budget from the UN, so we rely entirely on generous donations from people like you to fund our activities for children. Our goal is to create a safer environment for children everywhere.
UNICEF was established in 1946. We have been defending and promoting children's rights for 73 years!
UNICEF is the largest organization in the world for rescuing children. We store the most children, take care of education and provide protection for more children in the world than any other organization. We work to change legislation and policies so that children are protected everywhere.
We're just helping the kids. And we will not stop until the world is a safe place for all children.
A donation to UNICEF can help keep children safe.
We vaccinated 23,000,000 children against the measles epidemic last year, thanks to donations like yours.
Expertise and globalism
There is no other organization in 194 countries in the world. Our teams in the field specialize in health, nutrition and child protection and collaborate with communities and governments to eradicate poverty from the root, as well as address the immediate needs of children.
As soon as a humanitarian emergency occurs, UNICEF is on the ground. We have one of the most extensive equipment supply chains in the world. Which means we deliver vital supplies that save lives like water purification tablets, tents and vaccines, quickly and efficiently. Our equipment comes by sea, air (including planes and even skimmers) or by land. Depending on the needs and conditions in the field.
Innovation for children
We do not rest for a moment and look for ways to improve and become more efficient with the help of children. We have developed simple and accessible solutions for dealing with complex problems and the hand is still outstretched. For example - school kits in a box that allow classrooms to be operated anywhere and in any situation.
UNICEF is supported solely by voluntary donations from private donors, organizations, foundations, corporations and governments and does not receive funding from the UN. Most of the funding comes from donations collected from UNICEF branches in developed countries, such as Israel, around the world.
UNICEF in Israel
UNICEF was founded by Ludwig Reichman, a Polish Jewish physician after WWII, with the aim of helping the masses of children affected by the war. The organization brought Holocaust survivors to Israel and assisted in finding adoptive families for orphaned children. Provided a health infrastructure for Israeli children as well as food. Fortunately, today Israel is a developed country that does not need the assistance provided by UNICEF. On the day when the state turns to us and asks us to save the children of Israel from hunger, disease and lack of water and vaccines, we will gladly mobilize for it.
We do not help Holocaust survivors today mainly because we are a child rescue organization operating in a developed country.
We always appreciate the desire to donate equipment for the children of the world, but unfortunately we can not accept it for a number of reasons:
Displaced persons and refugees do not have the option of storing equipment, we select the necessary equipment for them that suits the conditions of the area and the circumstances.
We have a logistics center in Copenhagen that distributes products around the world to children who need them most. You can find in our warehouses over 850 different products, from education systems to hospital beds.
We have 72 years of assistance in combat situations; We move the blankets from our logistics center to the heart of aid centers through our activists and partners in the field. We know what type of truck can fit in, what kind of aid can be put in and how to pack it. All so that nothing will stop us on the way to our destination.
We are a political organization that receives support from people to help the most vulnerable children in the world. A child does not choose where to be born and is not responsible for the actions of the adults around him.
In the past year we have managed to reach 10 million people in need of assistance in Syria. More than any other organization. There are still many more who need us. All this would not have been possible without the help we receive from good people, this is because we are not supported by the UN but only by donations.
Thank you for the desire and willingness to help the children of the world, it is important for us to note in advance that as an organization, we do not fly active to foreign countries. Instead, local activities of the population are encouraged, for economic and ecological reasons. It is possible to volunteer in Israel, but it does not include activities with children, but in the field of administration, communication and resource mobilization.
For volunteering outside of Israel, you can fill in the details on the UN volunteer page https://www.unv.org/become-volunteer/volunteer-abroad
We are able to help the children of the world solely through voluntary donations, so it is important to us that you have it easy and simple to support us.
