8m children could die from malnutrition. Pledge support for delivering life-saving supplies.
Soaring food prices, record-breaking flooding and drought and the recent conflict in Ukraine has created a malnutrition crisis. Sign PetitionSign Petition
Every single minute, an additional child is being pushed into acute malnutrition.
This type of undernutrition can cause weakened immune systems that increase the risk of death among children under 5 by up to 11 times compared to well-nourished children.
But children don't need to go without life-saving food.
UNICEF, one of the world's most wide-reaching children's charities, is present in countries where food scarcity is increasing. Their teams are on the ground, working with local partners to deliver programs for children and families in need.
As the year comes to a close, UNICEF needs your help to urgently deliver life-saving therapeutic food to places like Somalia, Afghanistan, Yemen and across the Horn of Africa.
You can help to fill empty bellies.
Please, sign to pledge your support for children facing life-threatening hunger this year.
