Every day, somewhere in the world, UNICEF is saving and improving children's lives.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF helps provide kids in need with health care, clean water, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. Watch the stories of Rosiebell and Nirmala below.
Twelve-year-old Rosiebell lives with her family in La Orca, a small community in Nicaragua's mountains.
Until recently, she rose at dawn every day before school and walked over a mile to fetch water for her family. In fact, Rosiebell made the trip along a dangerous, rocky road three times each day. She felt scared and alone each time.
Despite her hard work, the water Rosiebell fetched was unclean and unsafe because animals polluted the creek. But her family had no other source of water. Watch the video to find out how UNICEF helped.
Around the world, there are 150 million orphans—650,000 of them live in Nepal. Many of these children are forced to become caretakers for their younger siblings. Thirteen-year-old Nirmala, for example, works long days to provide for her younger brother and sister. Still, she dreams of getting an education herself.
Hunger is a real problem in Nepal, with half of all children suffering from malnutrition. Parentless children are among the most vulnerable.
UNICEF is working in Nepal to provide children like Nirmala and her siblings the support they need and hope for a brighter future. When you Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, you are helping bring the essentials of life to the children most in need.
