Since the onslaught of Super Typhoon Odette, UNICEF teams have been working tirelessly on the ground in many of the affected areas. Immediate needs of children include safe drinking water, health, nutrition and psychosocial support, protection from violence and continuation of learning.
UNICEF has sent an initial batch of life-saving supplies to Dinagat Islands, Siargao, Surigao City and Surigao del Norte such as water purification tablets, hygiene kits, jerrycans, tents and water storage units, but this is far from enough.
You can still help bring lifesaving supplies and support recovery and rehabilitation efforts to children and families affected by Super Typhoon Odette.
START YOUR MONTHLY SUPPORT and help us protect and support children and families affected by any emergency at any time.
Your urgent support now can help send these life-saving supplies.
Why give monthly?
You become part of a community - As a monthly giver, you become a UNICEF Champion for Children, joining other Filipinos who are committed to protecting the rights of every Filipino child. Our Champions receive regular updates through e-mail and direct mail on how they have helped children as well as event invitations and other announcements.
You make a greater impact – The needs of children span many years, and UNICEF supports the rights of children from conception until 18 years of age. Having guaranteed and predictable funding every month will help UNICEF effectively plan ahead and implement programs that achieve lasting results for children.
You give more conveniently and efficiently - Payments are charged to your preferred credit card each month, with the amount and date of your monthly gift appearing on your credit card statement. You also have the flexibility to make changes to your monthly giving at any time by calling our donor hotline. This means less administrative costs for UNICEF and more funds freed up to go directly to helping children in need.
The abovementioned price points are illustrative donation amounts, the received donation will be deposited into a common pool of funds.
Actual interventions will depend on needs of our partners. If more funds are raised than needed for this emergency, then funds will be utilized for similar future emergencies.
