UNICEF BY jack, laurie and tom

What does UNICEF actually mean?

It actually stands for United Nations International Childerns Emergancy Fund.

This is an example of the high profile ambassadors that the organisation uses.

So what are their aims?

UNICEF is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly to advocate for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.

UNICEF is guided by the Convention on the Rights of the Child and strives to establish children's rights as enduring ethical principles and international standards of behaviour towards children.

UNICEF insists that the survival, protection and development of children are universal development imperatives that are integral to human progress.

UNICEF mobilizes political will and material resources to help countries, particularly developing countries, ensure a "first call for children" and to build their capacity to form appropriate policies and deliver services for children and their families.

UNICEF is committed to ensuring special protection for the most disadvantaged children - victims of war, disasters, extreme poverty, all forms of violence and exploitation and those with disabilities.

UNICEF responds in emergencies to protect the rights of children. In coordination with United Nations partners and humanitarian agencies, UNICEF makes its unique facilities for rapid response available to its partners to relieve the suffering of children and those who provide their care.

UNICEF is non-partisan and its cooperation is free of discrimination. In everything it does, the most disadvantaged children and the countries in greatest need have priority.

UNICEF aims, through its country programmes, to promote the equal rights of women and girls and to support their full participation in the political, social, and economic development of their communities.

UNICEF works with all its partners towards the attainment of the sustainable human development goals adopted by the world community and the realization of the vision of peace and social progress enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.

The case study

This is Akmed Sahmil. His native home is Usman Khokher in Pakistan. At the age of 2, Akmed was malnourished and almost dead. He had one parent, and had to share a room with 6 other siblings. When the representatives from unicef found him, he was dribbling and crawling from lack of energy and food. After him and his family were found, they jetted them off to the uk and this is him now at the age of 6.

The negatives

The only negatives that we could think of is that most of these resources come at a price. And if they want to help everyone in the world then they need a lot of cash to achieve that.
