Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for your support! You have helped to fully fund key components of our project “Help Refugees in Europe and Turkey.” Because of your generosity UNICEF was able to do support vulnerable refugee and migrant children during every stage of their journey. Through your support, UNICEF was able to:

  • Work with governments and partners to improve standards, child protection systems, policies and practices to help refugee and migrant children.
  • Provide support for children and families along migration routes to their final destinations. 
  • Model alternatives to detention centers – such as foster care, supervised independent living– for refugee and migrant children who are detained.
  • Help train first responders, social workers and government partners in dealing with child protection issues.
  • Support the provision of supplies, including shelter, materials, clothes, age appropriate foods and baby cribs.
  • Advocate for the promotion and the protection of the rights of all refugee and migrant children without discrimination on the basis of their parents’ needs or migration status.
  • Monitor the situation of children and the impact of new policies and practices on their rights.
  • Work with host communities to address xenophobia and promote social inclusion.

While we are closing this project on the GlobalGiving site. We would greatly appreciate your continued support of the UNICEF Emergency Response project here on GlobalGiving.

Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for your support! You have helped to fully fund key components of our project, “Protect Children in Latin America from Zika Virus.” The Zika virus crisis began in 2015 and affected many countries across Latin American and the Caribbean region. It was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by the World Health Organization (WHO), given the suspected linkage to birth defects and potential to infect up to four million people in a year. During the initial outbreak, UNICEF scaled up its support using its network of local offices, and worked to slow the spread of the virus, mitigate its impact and drive the creation of rapid diagnostic tests.

UNICEF priorities and impact were in three main areas:

  1. Informing and engaging communities on preventive measures
  2. Care and support for affected children and families
  3. Supporting the development of diagnostic tools

In the absence of a cure and ongoing challenges to control the spread of the virus, the development of a vaccine is still of paramount importance, especially for pregnant women and women of child bearing age. Ongoing support is needed to fund research and coordination efforts of vaccine development activities.

While UNICEF USA is closing this project on the GlobalGiving site, we would greatly appreciate your continued support of UNICEF Zika response through the UNICEF Emergency Response project here on GlobalGiving. By supporting UNICEF’s work through that program, you can receive updates on current emergencies happening around the globe, UNICEF’s response, and how you are creating an impact.  You can continue to see updates on our programs at www.unicefusa.org; following us on Twitter, or on Facebook.

On behalf of the children impacted by the Zika virus in Latin America and the Caribbean, thank you!

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your support of UNICEF’s efforts after the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal. The devastation and loss of life impacted so many families, parents and children across the region. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, UNICEF was able to responded to critical health needs and restore essential health services in affected districts.

In emergencies, UNICEF is there before, during and after a crisis. Building on its over 50-year presence in Nepal and a strong relationship with the government and people, UNICEF has been well positioned to continue to support those in need over the long term. In the area of WASH, UNICEF has been working with partners to provide earthquake-affected communities with tools and training to plan and manage their water and sanitation systems, including ensuring proper WASH services in 500 heath facilities and at least 300 schools, as well as longer-term sanitation support, including hygiene promotion. In education, UNICEF provided semi-permanent classrooms, trained teachers, and distributed education supplies to areas with the greatest need. UNICEF has also been supporting the Government of Nepal to develop policies and strategies for disaster risk reduction and school safety for inclusion in the new education sector plan. An example are the  fully equipped earthquake-resistant prefabricated health facilities in nine earthquake-affected districts, to strengthen the health sector and train staff to provide quality maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health services. UNICEF supported immunization campaigns, the installation of disaster-resilient cold chain systems and the improvement of the supply chain of vaccines at district level. Lastly, UNICEF has been focusing on strengthening  the child protection systems at the district and national level with local partners. 

None of this essential work would be possible without partners like you. On behalf of the children of Nepal, thank you for your support.
