UNICEF USA’s famine response and prevention initiative focuses on pregnant women in countries that have declared famine, such as South Sudan, as well as countries that are on the brink, such as Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen. For these women, the organization provides support during 1,000 or so days between the start of pregnancy and the child’s second birthday — this comes in the form breastfeeding support, and providing nutrient-rich foods foods to infants and micronutrient supplements to the mothers.
Go to UNICEF USA’s Nutrition Program, Emergency Relief Program, or Trick-or-Treat Program pages to find out more about how you can donate to each initiative. BTW, all proceeds from the Trick-or-Treat Program will go directly to children who’ve been affected by natural disasters in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and elsewhere in the Caribbean.
