UNICEF is the global leader promoting and protecting children’s rights in 190 countries, including the Syrian Arab Republic.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
What we do
UNICEF’s office in Syria was established in 1970 and has been working with local and international partners to help the Government fulfil its obligation to empower children to fully claim and enjoy their rights under the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
UNICEF works across sectors of health, social policy, child protection, early childhood development and education; we help supply water, sanitation and promote hygiene, nutrition and disaster risk reduction; we empower youth. UNICEF also provides humanitarian assistance when needed.
