COVID19 Emergency Action
UNICEF HK launched an emergency action entitled 「童你抗疫」衞生行動 ‘for every child, hygiene’, providing toilet disinfection service, delivering hygiene packs, and disseminating educational resources on personal and household hygiene to 10,000 grassroots families living in subdivided flats. This action aims to strengthen their awareness on hygienic home environment, in particular toilet sanitation, to prevent and control diseases and safeguard the health of disadvantaged children and their families.
Globally, UNICEF is addressing the outbreak by focusing its efforts to support China and the countries with confirmed cases in East Asia and the Pacific region, in containing the spread of the virus. Since January, UNICEF has flown in over 30 tonnes of supplies, including protective suits, masks, goggles and gloves. At the moment, UNICEF urgently appeals for US$651 million to support its global response to the outbreak. Please donate generously.
(In the unusual event that donations for the COVID-19 emergency exceed the needs, we will direct the gift to support children in crises.)
