Heart-breaking images of children's bodies washing up on the shores of Europe, lying suffocated in the backs of trucks crossing borders, being passed over barbed wire fences by desperate parents.

Child refugees and migrants must be protected at all times - with health care, food, education and adequate shelter that keeps families together. Trained child welfare experts should be deployed and search and rescue operations must continue - not only at sea, but also on land. Our statement on the child refugee and migrant crisis in Europe: http://uni.cf/1JQyh8o

“I’m genuinely passionate about my work and I hope that shows in everything I do.” Meet Alice Clements, Communication Specialist at UNICEF Pacific.
Alice Clements, Communication Specialist, UNICEF Pacific Tell us a bit about your background. I was born in Cambridge, New Zealand, which had a population of only 12,000 people. As a child I spent a lot of time planning how to escape to a bigger city – but I have to say as I get older I appreciate quiet towns more and more! I completed a Bachelor of Communication Studies at Waikato University in New Zealand, worked as a Public Relations C...

One in five women will become a victim of rape or attempted rape in her lifetime. Rather than moral numbness, we should feel a rage for action.

Introduction

UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child in 190 countries and territories, with a special focus on reaching those in greatest need. We have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality.  That makes us unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young.

We believe that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress.  UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.  We believe that we can, together, advance the cause of humanity.

We advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future.

We promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children.

We act so that all children are immunized against common childhood diseases, and are well nourished, because it is wrong for a child to suffer or die from a preventable illness.

We work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity.

We involve everyone in creating protective environments for children. We are present to relieve suffering during emergencies, and wherever children are threatened, because no child should be exposed to violence, abuse or exploitation.

UNICEF upholds the Convention on the Rights of the Child.  We work to assure equality for those who are discriminated against, girls and women in particular. We work for the Millennium Development Goals and for the progress promised in the United Nations Charter. We strive for peace and security. We work to hold everyone accountable to the promises made for children.

We are part of the Global Movement for Children – a broad coalition dedicated to improving the life of every child.  Through this movement, and events such as the United Nations Special Session on Children, we encourage young people to speak out and participate in the decisions that affect their lives. 

We are active in more than 190 countries and territories through country programmes and National Committees. We are UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund.
