Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Thank you for your continued support of UNICEF!

Stephanie Ahlschwede, executive director of United Methodist Ministries, Omaha, Neb., literally puts herself into the spirit of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

For more than 60 years, UNICEF has been doing whatever it takes to save the lives of children. Applying its unique reach, expertise, access, innovation, efficiency, and resolve, UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world.

About UNICEF

UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization in the world. Working in more than 150 countries, UNICEF provides children with health care, clean water, improved nutrition, education, emergency relief, and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States. UNICEF is at the forefront of efforts to reduce child mortality worldwide, and there has been substantial progress: the annual number of under-five deaths dropped from 12.4 million in 1990 to 8.1 million in 2009. But still, 22,000 children die each day from reventable
causes. Our mission is to do whatever it takes to make that number zero by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood.
