UNICEF's Haiti Relief Efforts

UNICEFs Haiti Relief Efforts

UNICEF in Haiti is responding to a true children's emergency in which 1.5 million boys and girls remain vulnerable.

In the wake of the January 2010 earthquake, UNICEF's work has prevented a second disaster:

Vaccination campaigns have prevented significant disease outbreaks

Feeding programs have prevented a rise in the number of malnourished children

Protection of women and children is a priority in the displaced camps

At work in over 150 countries, UNICEF has saved more children's lives than any other humanitarian aid organization.

Its long-term presence in Haiti and global experience in disaster relief and recovery ensures that UNICEF will be key player in the country's transformation from a perilous place for kids into a " Haiti Fit for Children."

A full generation of Haitian children faces an uncertain future -- one that depends on the continued support of donors and continued attention to Haiti's needs.

Join Good Morning America and UNICEF in making Haiti the beneficiary of your commitment.
