Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Closing date: 25 Jul 2018
UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.
For every child, a champion
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) responds to an average of over 280 humanitarian situations each year, ensuring that resources are in place to support millions of children affected by conflict or disaster. In nearly all these emergencies, the organization’s response is based on existing programmes, partnerships and resources.
The Humanitarian Action for Children (HAC) has been produced by UNICEF’s Office of Emergency Programmes (EMOPS) on an annual basis and examines crises that require exceptional support – where urgent action is imperative to save lives, protect children against the worst forms of violence and abuse, and ensure access to water and sanitation, health care, nutrition and education.
The HAC provides an overview of the humanitarian situation affecting children and women in a given context and UNICEF’s response to those challenges. It includes country appeals which are part of interagency Humanitarian/Strategic Response Plans (HRPs/SRPs) and countries outside this inter-agency framework. Regional and global support are highlighted in dedicated chapters.
Previously paper and publication/PDF-based, the HAC now resides largely online (see www.unicef.org/appeals), allowing for a more dynamic presence with regular updates of country information.
