Dear Michael,

I want to express my warmest gratitude for your recent donation to help the world's children.

The response to our December campaign was deeply humbling. You and over 21,000 other donors like you responded to our appeals in the final weeks of 2011. Together, you are funding a massive series of lifesaving interventions in Africa and around the world. Whether that means you're handing a crinkly, foiled packet of therapeutic nut-paste to a famished boy, or you're lifting a young girl off the dirt floor of a school in Malawi to give her a proper desk, your action this past month has changed a child's life forever.

Every day 21,000 children die from preventable causes, but because of you and thousands of UNICEF supporters like you, we know that one day that number will be zero.

I can't thank you enough for the kindness and generosity you've shown to those who need it most.

With warm wishes for a happy New Year,

Caryl M. Stern
President & CEO
U.S. Fund for UNICEF


Dear Michael,

Nearly 2 years ago, a horrific earthquake shook Haiti to its core, leaving millions of children in grave danger. Get details on the substantial progress that's been made since that time thanks to the support of UNICEF donors.

Be sure to check out the newHaiti365 website, where you can answer questions posed by young people in Haiti.

This year UNICEF turns 65. Find out why UNICEF was founded and how the organization has evolved over the years.

Recent major flooding in the Philippines has left thousands homeless. Learn how UNICEF is responding.

Finally, watch a new video about the UNICEF/MSNBC collaboration that is supplying desks to children in Africa.

Happy New Year!

Two years of real progress

Two years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, the scars left on the bodies and in the minds of the children are still healing.

But there is very real recovery taking place on the ground – thanks to the generosity of UNICEF supporters:

  • More than 80,000 children are now learning in 193 schools constructed by UNICEF since the earthquake.
  • Some 393,000 children have been screened and over 15,300 were treated for acute malnutrition in 2011.
  • 8,780 separated children have been registered and over 2,770 reunified with their families since the earthquake.

Stories From The Field

UNICEF turns 65

UNICEF celebrated its 65th anniversary last month. Founded in the aftermath of World War II, its mission was to bring shelter, food, and clothing to the children of war-torn countries. Sixty-five years later, UNICEF works across political and social divides to save children from suffering and death.

What a little K.I.N.D.ness can mean

Millions of children in Africa struggle to learn while sitting painfully on a dirt floor. Kids in Need of Desks (K.I.N.D.), a partnership with MSNBC, helps supply desks to the children of Malawi. This fun video from a supporter explains exactly what a desk can mean to a child in Malawi.
