UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. We work tirelessly to help children and their families, doing whatever it takes to ensure children survive. We provide children with healthcare and immunization, clean water, nutrition and food security, education, emergency relief, and more.
UNICEF Canada is a Canadian non-governmental organization established more than 50 years ago. We are one of 36 National Committees around the world who play a vital role in generating fundraising revenue, public support and awareness for UNICEF’s work and we are also advocates for the protection and realization of children’s rights.
UNICEF is supported entirely by voluntary donations and helps children, regardless of race, religion or politics. As part of the UN, we are active in over 190 countries – more than any other organization. Our determination and our reach are unparalleled. Because nowhere is too far to go to help a child survive.
