Over the last 70 years, UNICEF has aimed to achieve a world where all children across the globe are given equal opportunites to survive and thrive. It promotes the rights of every child by focusing on disadvantaged, excluded, and vulnerable children. UNICEF helps indivduals reach their full potential in political, social, and economic settings. Through its efforts, UNICEF has made an impact on the world by providing lifesaving aid to children, adopting the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, and fighting off Ebola.
When WWII ended in Europe many children suffered with famine and disease. In December of 1946 the United Nations created UNICEF, which provided many necessary means such as food, clothing, and heath care.
