Note to editors
Globally, UNICEF is appealing for $ 1.6 billion to meet the growing needs of children and families affected by COVID-19 around the world. Since the beginning of the pandemic, UNICEF has been responding to COVID-19 crisis in Thailand and around the world:
- Delivering essential supplies like soap and hand-sanitizers and promoting hygiene among most vulnerable children and communities.
- Shipping medical supplies and personal protective equipment to the most vulnerable countries around the world.
- Helping schools be ready for safe opening when the time comes, including by providing preventative medical supplies like thermometers and hand sanitizers, and in the meantime, support alternative learning programmes while schools are still closed.
- Support young people’s mental health during the crisis and beyond.
- Provide information materials on hygiene practices and COVID-19 prevention to protect everyone in Thailand, through media and social media.
- Analyse the economic and social impact of COVID-19, particularly to the most vulnerable children and families, and to support the Royal Thai Government to strengthen social protection support to the most vulnerable including poor families and families with disabilities.
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.
