UNICEF

In this article we will discuss United Nations Children’s Fund

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)

It is an international agency, a subsidiary body of the General Assembly. It came into
being on 11th December 1946 after the Second World War. Now the words ‘international’ and ‘emergency’ have been dropped from the name of the organization. It is now called United Nations Children’s Fund but abbreviation in vogue is still UNICEF. UNICEF has completed 48 years of service in India. UNICEF is not financed through the regular U.N. budget, but by voluntary contributions from the member countries, besides individual
organizations. 10% of its resources come from the sale of UNICEF greeting cards. Aid is given only for those projects, which aim to prevent disease and promote health of the mothers and children.
