      WHY
      UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories and has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the lives of people around the world, especially children, have been significantly disrupted. It has established a new “normal” that has physical, social and emotional consequences for children— consequences that communities and parents need tools to address. UNICEF is helping to reduce and address the impact of COVID-19 on families by distributing supplies and prevention kits to schools and clinics around the world, providing practical tips and information to parents, and offering education-driven and healing activities for children. UNICEF won’t stop until every child has a chance at an equitable future.
