Why Give UNICEF Survival Gifts

UNICEF’s Survival Gifts® are real life-saving items shipped on your behalf to children and families in urgent need across the globe. There are over 40 life-saving gifts to choose from including: healthcare supplies, safe water, vaccines, nutrition, education and emergency relief.

Because Survival Gifts are not symbolic, they are tangible items with life-saving impact. Your gift will be shipped directly from the largest humanitarian warehouse in the world. A free card that explains the impact of your purchase is included with every gift.

Thanks to supporters in Canada, Survival Gifts reached 1.7 million children and families with critical life-saving aid in 2021.


More than 700
children die every day for preventable diseases linked to poor water and sanitation.

27 million
children and youth are not in school.

children miss out on life-saving vaccines annually. 

Real Results with Survival Gifts

From not being able to stand by herself to walking again on her own, this is Adut's 8-week journey to recovery from severe acute malnutrition. Thanks to Survival Gifts supporters, Adut was provided with a ready-to-use-therapeutic food called Plumpy’Nut – a peanut paste enriched with vitamins and minerals. After just five weeks in a UNICEF supported nutrition program, Adut was already looking healthier, happier and more active.

"Her body and her face are now healthy and there is no more sickness. She's really moving on well without any problems."
– Adut’s mother, Angelina
