Every child counts
UNICEF is the World's largest humanitarian organization for children and are working globally for the rights of every child. Childrens rights begin with the right to have safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle: pre-natal care for healthy births, clean water and sanitation, health care and education.
