What is UNICEF about?
UNICEF stands for the United Nations Children’s Fund (formerly called United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund). As its name indicates, it is a programme created by the United Nations to protect and promote children’s healthcare, education, equality and rights in countries in need. Thanks to people’s donations, qualified professionals go to the field to help by fighting diseases, providing food, medications and shelters and supporting children and mothers in many other ways.
In this way, UNICEF is a key organisation fighting against children’s inequalities in the long term.
What is the role of UNICEF On Campus Cardiff?
Funded in 2008, UNICEF on Campus Cardiff aims at helping UNICEF in its cause by raising awareness (main goal) and raising money through meaningful events.
What do we do?
We organise different fundraising and informative events throughout the year. Some events are held every year such as the music charity concert, the football 5-aside tournament and the cake sales. Other events follow the different campaigns that have a link with UNICEF.
