Protect Children And Health Workers From COVID-19

Viruses know no borders. Children all over the world are vulnerable to COVID-19, especially those in refugee camps and war zones who lack even the most basic hygiene supplies such as soap and safe water for handwashing. The front line health workers responding to this crisis are also at risk. More than ever, they need protective measures to keep themselves and children safe. Life-saving supplies like handwashing soap, water purification tablets and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are critical in the global fight against COVID-19.

UNICEF Survival Gifts are real items with real impact. When you order a gift, it will be shipped from our UNICEF warehouse in Copenhagen, Denmark, to children, families and health workers at risk around the world.

Please help protect the world’s most vulnerable children and front line health workers from COVID-19 and other preventable diseases by purchasing one or more of the Survival Gifts below.

Help us protect health workers protecting others with a bundle of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) - which includes a respiratory mask, a surgical mask, gloves, protective boots and a coverall gown that help  prevent the spread of preventable diseases.

Only three out of five people worldwide have basic handwashing facilities. And yet we know proper handwashing is a crucial step in the fight against COVID-19. You can give 135 children soap and water purification tablets, so they can wash their hands and stay safe.

Handwashing is the one of the most effective ways to prevent COVID-19, and yet 3 billion people do not have access to handwashing facilities at home. Give 45 children everything they need to safely wash their hands, including soap and water purification tablets.
