In 3 seconds an earthquake can crush homes and the families living inside them.
In 5 hours a flood can drown a town and leave thousands of children vulnerable to life threatening diseases like cholera and malaria.
In 7 days drought can threaten children's lives across whole countries as they run out of food and water and start wasting away from malnutrition and starvation.
What if this was your home, your town or your child?
When emergency strikes, you can help us make sure no child is forgotten. Within 48 hours UNICEF and its partners are on the ground providing food, shelter and protection. We work to reunite children with their families, care for those orphaned and counsel the traumatised.
We also work in the longer term to rebuild damaged communities. From immunisation days to building schools, we remain until every child has access to healthcare and a safe place to play and go to school.
As the number of emergencies rise every year, we need your help to make sure we can be there before, during and after the next emergency.
Give a monthly donation today to save lives, protect childhoods and give children the chance to go to school during emergencies and whenever else children need us.
