Imagine an additional 150 million children have lost their childhood and plunged into multidimensional poverty due to COVID-19 as of mid-2020, meaning they have no guaranteed access to education, health, housing, nutrition, and sanitation. Step into their shoes and show your dance moves with our celebrity tour guide to regain the joy as a child for them!
An additional 6.7 million children under 5 could become dangerously undernourished due to the pandemic. Let’s do our part and cherish the food we have – by turning “ugly food”, not nice-looking but yet nutritional, into amazing feasts! You can challenge your friends to join you too!
Adequate water, sanitation and hygiene services for families, schools and healthcare facilities are essential to epidemic prevention and control. Yet, one third of the population worldwide still lack access to safe and readily available water at home, leaving women and children with no choice but to spend a total of 200 million hours every day collectively to fetch water. Let’s try looking for water source in hiking and make your own funny illusion photo with your creativity!
With school closures during the COVID-19 outbreak, many places like Hong Kong provide continuous education using technologies. But it is not for all - since two thirds of the world’s school-age children, or 1.3 billion, have no internet access at home. Thus, UNICEF supports regions like Rwanda locally to develop radio lessons during school closures. Why don’t we try sharing your happy school life memories, as if we are back to school? Definitely it would be a good way to share the joy with children who can continue to learn remotely during COVID-19.
Washing hand with soap is critical in the fight against COVID-19, but over 40% of people worldwide have no access to basic hand washing facilities. Hong Kong enjoys reliable water supply for a very long time as a result of waterworks infrastructure. Follow us on an exploration to find out more about water supply facilities in Hong Kong, including how UNICEF stretches technology and resources for the same purpose.
Change for Good is a programme operated by UNICEF and the international airline industry to raise money through travellers’ donating foreign changes to help millions of children. Today, we are bringing this programme home so you can make an effort to help those in need around the world. Simply collect coins (local or foreign) at home and donate them to our donation boxes - every little bit helps!
UNICEF promotes facts over fear by giving reliable guidance to parents and caregivers so they can keep children healthy. But access to accurate information in South Sudan is very difficult, hence UNICEF accelerates information spreading by championing blue messaging bicycles to broadcast COVID-19 messages in remote areas to help people stay safe. So let’s get on wheels for a cycling donation ride to spread your positive message to the world!
At least 332 million children and young people globally have lived under stay-at-home policies for most of the last year, putting mental health and well-being at risk. Let’s give these children a healthy boost by challenging yourself to complete different sets of yoga moves!
Learning opportunity is a treasure for many around the world when school is not a place they could access every day, such as in Côte d'Ivoire. UNICEF supports the local government to build quality schools in a short time and at a low cost by innovating construction approaches, i.e. using the recycled plastic bricks. Now use your creativity to build a school model using natural or recycled materials, and share with us!
