Today, one in every four children in the world is living in a country affected by conflict or disaster. Nearly 50 million children have been uprooted from their homes due to violence, poverty or natural disasters. 7 major emergencies required organization-wide mobilization in 2017: the protracted conflicts in Iraq, north-east Nigeria, South Sudan, the Syrian Arab Republic and neighbouring countries and Yemen; and the emerging crises in Bangladesh and the Democratic Rep. of the Congo. UNICEF is on a mission to reach every child in need and ensure their well-being, no matter where they are in the world. There’s no limit to the lengths UNICEF will go -for every child. As we continue to respond to more humanitarian situations, your support is what makes the difference and your flexible resources are what allow us to respond quickly in a crisis and allocate resources to where they are needed most. It's thanks to your generosity that we are able to help children affected by crisis return to school, reunite with their families, avoid preventable diseases and get the nutrients and clean water they need to survive childhood and grow into healthy adults.
