Multi-Country Humanitarian Appeals - UNICEF 2022
Jun 6, 2022 - Dec 31, 2024
The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to advocate for the protection of children's rights, help meet their basic needs and expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. In countries experiencing humanitarian crises, UNICEF fulfills its mandate through humanitarian assistance programming activities outlined under the Humanitarian Action for Children appeal and guided by its Core Commitments for Children.
With the support of Canada and other donors, UNICEF provides an integrated package of life-saving services to conflict and disaster-affected children and families. Project activities include: (1) providing water, sanitation and hygiene facilities; (2) treating children for severe acute malnutrition; (3) providing emergency education programming for children and adolescents; (4) providing child protection safe spaces including gender-based violence risk mitigation, prevention or response interventions for children and women; and (5) providing basic health care.
Global Affairs Canada
The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to safe drinking water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education; (2) increased access to services and commodities to identify and treat acute malnutrition for the most vulnerable, particularly children under 5 years old, and pregnant and lactating women; (3) increased school enrollment and attendance rate for children and adolescents; (4) increased access to protection services, especially for children and women; and (5) increased access to basic health care services.
The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained for the populations in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
