Unicef

I am so excited about tommorow when unicef is coming Here is a bit about them;

Right now, children are in danger. They face violence, disease,hunger, and the chaos of war and disaster. This is wrong and it has to change.

Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We work in over 190 countries around the world. We have done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect children than anyone else in history.

We get things done.

And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.

Unicef was created by the United Nations in December 1946, after World War II, to provide food, clothing and healthcare to European children who faced famine and disease.

In 1953 the UN General Assembly extended Unicef’s mandate indefinitely.

We now work in more than 190 countries with families, local communities, business partners and governments, to help protect children in danger.

Unicef UK was founded in 1956 and is a registered charity.

This is the most important part…
