About UNICEF Canada

UNICEF is the world’s leading humanitarian organization for children, working in 190 countries and territories.  We have been in Canada for more than 60 years, defending every child’s Right to a Childhood so kids everywhere can grow up safe, healthy and able to reach their full potential. With support from Canadians like you, we are reaching the world’s most vulnerable children with health care and vaccines, education, nutrition, safe water and sanitation, and protection. Because of donor generosity, UNICEF is vaccinating 45% of the world’s children under age 5, saving 2-3 millions of lives each year.

UNICEF is there for children before, during and long after emergencies. No matter the crisis or challenge, we are ready at a moment’s notice and will not give up. We collaborate with others, so projects are supported by the communities where we work. Our ability to collaborate with governments to scale up efforts also means that impact for children is multiplied.

Children count on UNICEF, but they really count on you. Our work relies entirely on voluntary contributions. Together, we are tackling the greatest challenges facing children today and tomorrow, helping them to survive and have the brighter future they deserve. With you by our side, we are creating a better world for every child.
