In times of emergency, it’s the children who suffer the most. Right now, over seven million children in Ukraine and its bordering countries are in need of food and clean water, medical care, clothing and a safe place to sleep.
For the past 75 years, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has built an unprecedented global support system for the world’s children. UNICEF‘s mission is to deliver the essentials that give every child an equitable chance in life: health care and immunizations, safe water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. UNICEF USA advances the global mission of UNICEF by rallying the American public to support the world’s most vulnerable children.
War in Ukraine has intensified, posing an imminent threat to more than seven million children. Heavy weapons fire along the contact line in eastern Ukraine has already damaged water infrastructure and schools. UNICEF is scaling up its emergency response inside the country while also racing to meet the urgent needs of vulnerable children and families on the move as they stream into neighboring countries.
Beasley Best Community of Caring is proud to support the humanitarian efforts of UNICEF for the children affected by the crisis in Ukraine.
