Goal: 20,000 Progress: 4,114
Sponsored by: U.S. Fund for UNICEF

Since its creation in 1947, UNICEF has saved more children's lives than any humanitarian organization in the world. No other organization does more to help vulnerable children around the world to survive and thrive.

UNICEF supports maternal, prenatal, and newborn care; child health and nutrition; clean water and sanitation; quality basic education for girls and boys; and protecting children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. Because of its unique experience and global presence, UNICEF is able to participate in all stages of assistance — emergency response, post-crisis recovery, and long-term development.

UNICEF’s partnership with the U.S. Government and the American people makes a profound difference in children’s lives. UNICEF and the United States helped to cut the number of under-five child deaths from 12 million a year in 1990, to 6.9 million today.

Send a letter to your representative to maintain the U.S. Government's annual voluntary contribution to support UNICEF's child survival programs.

Please maintain the U.S. Government's annual voluntary contribution to UNICEF

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to ask you to provide $132 million for Fiscal Year 2014 as the U.S. Government's voluntary contribution to UNICEF, included in the International Organizations and Programs Account of the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations, as recommended by the Senate Appropriations Committee. As the House and Senate work to finalize the appropriations for FY 2014, I urge you to support the Senate level for UNICEF.

The U.S. Government's support for UNICEF is an effective investment in saving and improving the lives of vulnerable children around the world, and is an example of assistance that reflects our American values.

Since its founding in 1947, UNICEF has saved more children's lives than any humanitarian organization. Thanks to strong, bipartisan House and Senate support for UNICEF and for child survival, the number of children dying before age five from preventable causes has dropped by more than half since 1960. However, 6.9 million children still die every year unnecessarily, and UNICEF continues to work to reach every single vulnerable child.

The funding UNICEF receives in the annual appropriations enables UNICEF to be an indispensable partner of the United States in saving children from preventable deaths, supporting basic education, fighting the impact of HIV/AIDS on children, and protecting children from violence, exploitation, and abuse. The contribution also enables UNICEF to partner with American service organizations such as Kiwanis International to fight iodine deficiency disorders and maternal and neonatal tetanus, and Rotary International to work for the global eradication of polio. These are examples of successful initiatives that are strongly supported by the American people.

The U.S. contribution to UNICEF is one of the most worthwhile global investments in children we can make, so I encourage you to support $132 million for UNICEF in the appropriations for FY 2014.

Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to hearing from you.
