Since 1953 the German Committee for UNICEF has been supporting children around the world. The German Committee for UNICEF counts on over 8000 volunteers and many celebrities who are committed to UNICEF and its objectives. With over 900,000 donors, individual and corporate and over 500,000 buyers of the popular UNICEF greeting cards each year, the Germany Committee for UNICEF ensures that it can provide support to children in need in 150 countries around the world.

The German Committee for UNICEF is a long-time partner to UNICEF Cambodia and has supported the work in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), child protection and support to victims of landmines. Under the current Country Programme, with support from the German Committee, UNICEF Cambodia has achieved important results in the area of child protection including: 267 former street children who accessed their right to education through reintegration into the public school system; 63 child victims of physical and sexual violence who have received psychosocial support and care through M’lop Tapang (a NGO partner), and; 29 imprisoned children, including 4 girls, who accessed their right to legal services (pre-trial and trial) in Banteay Meanchey. With support from the German Committee, UNICEF Cambodia has continued its work on prevention of landmine accidents and assistance to landmine victims with 553 disabled people receiving support including rehabilitation sessions and training on the use of the prosthesis/mobility devices. Additionally, the safety of close to 4000 children has increased as they are educated and aware of the risks posed by landmines/UXOs. Finally, with the German Committee’s support to UNICEF Cambodia’s work in WASH, approximately 2,002 children now have access to safe water and sanitation facilities in four schools in Phnom Penh.
