|As the oldest of 37 national committees for UNICEF throughout the world, the mission of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF is to promote the survival, protection, and development of all children worldwide through fundraising, advocacy, and education. Our work is accomplished through a collaborative tapestry of individuals, non-governmental organizations, corporate partners, faith-based organizations, the media, grass-roots groups, and children themselves, all of whom have joined UNICEF to help shape a world where the basic needs and human rights of every child are realized.
|The U.S. Fund for UNICEF works to support UNICEF-assisted programs to immunize children, provide them with health care, nutritional supplements, and educational opportunities, as well as to protect children from exploitation as a result of child labor, armed conflicts, and emergency situations.|
Thanks to the efforts of UNICEF and its partners in 158 countries and territories in the developing world, more than seven million young lives are saved each year. UNICEF provides lifesaving medicine, better nutrition, clean water and sanitation, early childhood development programs, quality basic education, child protection initiatives, and emergency relief.
