The funds raised through the event support UNICEF’s work to provide care and protection to the world’s most vulnerable children. Despite remarkable challenges around the world, UNICEF staffers fight every day for the rights of every child seeking safe shelter, nutrition, protection from disaster, conflicts, and equality. UNICEF promotes the rights and well-being of every child. Together with partners, working in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere. UNICEF Italy is a registered charity which is funded entirely by voluntary contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
We must not forget, there is no future without children. It doesn’t matter the color, religion or race. Children are children, and we are here for them. Only by joining together and uniting our forces can we make a difference.
