UNICEF
International Organization based in United States of America

UNICEF is the leading humanitarian and development agency working globally for the rights of every child. Child rights begin with safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster and conflict and traverse the life cycle: pre-natal care for healthy births, clean water and sanitation, health care and education.

UNICEF has spent over 60 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Working with and for children through adolescence and into adulthood requires a global presence whose goal is to produce results and monitor their effects. UNICEF also lobbies and partners with leaders, thinkers and policy makers to advance the access of all children to their rights—especially the most disadvantaged.

Highlights

  • Clashes between the Forces Armées de la RDC (FARDC) and armed groups in North Kivu province resulted in the abrupt dismantling of IDP camps, in part due to government information that camps had been infiltrated by armed groups. With the subsequent displacement of up to 35,000 people, UNICEF and other humanitarian actors have been addressing the most urgent needs and advocating that camp closures are conducted in a more coordinated manner, in line with relevant international regulations.
