UNICEF is created in December 1946 after World War 2 by the United Nations to provide food, clothing and health care to European children faced famine and disease. They believe, helping and feeding families is the foundation of human progress.. With this belief they help children and families that have to deal with poverty, violence, diseases. They educate kids, who do not have the access to education like we do. We believe every single child should have the right to be “immunized against common childhood diseases, and be well nourished, because it is wrong for a child to suffer or die from a preventable illness.” We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity. 2012, UNICEF treated 2 million children for severe and moderate malnutrition; immunized 38.3 million children; provided 12.4 million people with access to safe water for drinking, cooking and bathing; provided 2.4 million children with child protection services; provided 3 million children with access to improved education; UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. We believe that we can, together, we can make a difference in each of these children, donate today by going online “https://secure3.unicef.ca/site/Donation2?df_id=1481&1481.donation=form1&s_locale=en_CA”
