Dear Friend,

By contributing to UNICEF’s humanitarian response, you have allowed UNICEF to deliver the most impactful results for children in emergencies. When the needs of children are constantly evolving, the flexibility to use these funds in the most agile way possible is critical.

When time is of the essence, Country Offices can receive funding within 24 hours. This funding is UNICEF’s critical “first responder,” allowing UNICEF to reach and help children in the first few days of any emergency. UNICEF’s rapid transfer mechanism saves lives across the globe. It also saves costs. UNICEF can be agile across ~300 emergencies each year, adjusting and course correcting to best meet the needs of children at every juncture.

With your generous support of even $1 invested in high-risk humanitarian contexts, UNICEF has been able to save an average of over $4 on the next emergency and speed up operations by more than 12 days.

With more than 75 years of expertise, across 190 countries, UNICEF works to protect children’s rights, help meet their basic needs and expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. For example, UNICEF Libya has provided support to children since 1957. With your support, UNICEF is currently implementing a Country Program with a particular focus on access to quality health, education, WASH and social services. Following Storm Daniel, UNICEF and partners have mobilized 1,100 hygiene kits & vital medical supplies for 10,000 people & providing essential clothing kits for 500 children. UNICEF continues to closely follow up on the situation and to engage with the Libyan authorities to determine the best course of action as this situation evolves.

On behalf of the vulnerable children around the world who find themselves in the midst of emergencies, we thank you for your support.

In partnership,

Marisa Ferguson
