Mozambique UN0299183 hero


This edition of UNICEF’s annual humanitarian funding appeal presents information about ongoing conflicts and disasters affecting millions of children and young people around the world – as well as achievements made by UNICEF and partners in response to these emergencies, and urgent humanitarian needs that remain unmet as 2020 begins. As the overview demonstrates, UNICEF continues working to reach the most vulnerable children and families with the life-saving support they need during and after emergencies. The overview also highlights efforts to strengthen the links between humanitarian action and development work, and thus to make a sustainable impact in areas affected or threatened by crises.
