What Issue Does Your Charity Support?
UNICEF does not only provide services for disadvantaged children, but they are also a disaster relief fund that raises money for U.S. and international disasters. Natural disasters, and unnatural disasters, like war, have affected the U.S. and the rest of the world. Having prior experience with natural disasters and UNICEF's help, cities and countries are becoming more aware of how to deal with these disasters. Many donations are made to UNICEF's disaster relief fund which helps countries and areas have a better place to live in. By preparing people for these types of disasters, disaster recovery will occur faster and they will seem like they never happened.
How Did UNICEF Start?
What do they do for us and How good are they at it?
UNICEF is an incredibly large and widespread organization; therefore, it performs many different services based on which community it is in and what that place is lacking. On an international scale, UNICEF focuses on helping the children of the world (after all, it is the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund) but they also help communities as a whole. Their method benefits all, since providing for the next generation ensures that there will be a next generation, and protecting the entire community will help the adults in the area, which guarantees that the wisdom of the elders is passed along for posterity. According to the information on UNICEF’s website, the main focuses of UNICEF are child survival and development, basic education, gender equality, HIV/AIDS in children, child protection, and children’s rights. The people that work for UNICEF are amazing at doing just that. They worked so well that Charity Navigator gave them a rating of about 96 out of a 100 on their accountability and financial status. This is a high honor that shows just how amazing UNICEF really is.
