Holiday gifts

  • An order of bright blue UNICEF backpacks supports learning and success. Girls and boys delight in carrying books and supplies in their own backpack—one of few personal possessions.

  • A set of warm blankets will shield vulnerable babies from cold, protect them from illness and provide comfort and security in harsh and dangerous conditions.
  • Hundreds and thousands of families, including women and children, become homeless during an emergency. Provide a temporary UNICEF shelter for a family of 5. This gift includes blankets for warmth and a tarpaulin for privacy and protection from the elements. 
  • The fact that tetanus kills 1 baby every 21 minutes makes this gift a necessity. A case of tetanus vaccines will protect mothers, who then pass on their immunity to their babies.
  • Malnourished children need to gain weight fast. This life-saving, peanut-based food supplement can help a hungry child gain up to two pounds per week!

  • In the chaos of disasters and conflict, many children get separated from their loved ones. Support a child with their reintegration back into their family and community, after being released from an armed group, by providing them with a hygiene and clothing package.

  • When crisis strips a community of its education resources, a School-in-a-Box with supplies to teach 40 children equips teachers to turn a tent or the shade of a tree into a classroom.
  • A pack with sports equipment and skipping ropes is enough to fuel imaginations, teach teamwork and help children heal from trauma.
  • For children threatened by poverty and emergencies, humanitarian aid can’t arrive fast enough. A contribution to address the most urgent need brings life-enhancing nutrition, education and emergency relief to the children whose lives hang in the balance.
  • A small or large box of water purification tablets ensures families have safe water to drink and bathe, to help keep children healthy and in school.
