Unicef Australia

A child’s first 1,000 days is the most critical time for growth and development.
It sets the foundation for the rest of its life. But survival beyond the first 1,000 days is a struggle for many children around the world, and 16,000 children still die each day from preventable causes.

You can help UNICEF turn a time of great vulnerability into one of great opportunity. Give a child a life, a chance, a choice. Become a UNICEF Global Parent and donate monthly to give children the best possible start to a long healthy life.


Our promise to you

Mission Australia has been helping people move towards independence for more than 155 years, and our commitment to this vital work has never been stronger.

Thanks to your support, together we helped 131,015 people in 2016 by combatting homelessness, assisting disadvantaged families and children, addressing mental health issues, fighting substance dependencies, and much more.

In 2016, more than 88.8% of our income went straight back into delivering services that assisted vulnerable Australians.

We appreciate every single donation we receive, and ensure that every dollar goes where it is needed most.
