Join with Unicef to end violence against children now
Keeping every child safe from violence is a huge challenge and Unicef can’t do it alone. They need your help. In Papua New Guinea a shocking 75% of children experience some form of physical abuse. Unicef help them receive emergency medical care, counselling, legal assistance, re-integration and social support. In Laos, children with disabilities are particularly vulnerable to violence and abuse. That’s why Unicef are focusing on improved services and family-based care for children with disabilities. Prevention is the key to ending violence against children for good. In Cambodia, where half of the children regularly experience violence, they’re working with local leaders to prevent, identify and respond to child abuse and exploitation. In Myanmar, they’re working with government and community to make sure children who survive violence have access to medical, legal, social and counselling services, including in conflict areas.
Unicef is the United Nations Children’s Fund, a leading global humanitarian and development agency that works to uphold the rights of every child. Established in 1946 in the aftermath of World War II, they now operate in more than 190 countries and territories. Their work aims to help all children — especially the most disadvantaged and marginalised— to lead safe, healthy lives and realise their full potential.
