The UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) organization was created in December of 1946 by the United Nations. It is now present in a total of 190 countries around the globe. 

What is UNICEF? 

What is UNICEF?

UNICEF was created after World War II to provide food, clothing, and health care to European children who faced famine and disease. 

The mission of UNICEF is to "advocate for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expandtheir opportunities to reach their full potential."

This organization believes that all children have the right to thrive and succeed to their full potential. 

UNICEF strives to "work for a world in which every child has a fair chance in life." 

The Mission of UNICEF

UNICEF works with children and adolescents through Voices of Youth, hearing their concerns and finding ways to improve their quality of life. 

How UNICEF Carries Out Its Mission 

UNICEF also brings care to children around the world, promoting equality of services to everyone. This care includes health care, such as vaccines. 

The Importance and Significance of UNICEF

Some countries (more less developed countries) do not have the access or the funding for the amount of health care or the quality of life that more developed countries (such as the US) have. UNICEF helps to provide care to these less developed countries in order to help children to reach their full potential and to get their voices heard as well. This organization changes the lives of children all around the world every day.
