A Message from the U.S. Fund Board Chair and President
Dear Friend of UNICEF,Every day, you help us to be the voice of the world’s children. It’s not always easy. This Earth can be a loud place.But you have shown over time that you know how imperative it is that children are heard, that their needs areaddressed, that they are protected and given the opportunities for health and education they all deserve.The one-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake was a stark reminder of just how essential it is to put childrencenter stage (see p. 3). UNICEF believes that children must be at the heart of the recovery in Haiti to ensuremeaningful transformation and lasting progress. The generation of children we are helping in Haiti now will
become the adults who lead their country away from its cycle of poverty and unfullled potential. We have been
awed by their resilience and determination — despite all they have lost in the last year — to get the education
they know they need to elevate their lives, and their country. With your support, we will continue to help Haiti’s
children attain that education.
The core benets of a good education are no mystery. But a recent study published in
The Lancet
shows, in avery concrete way, that education can actually make an entire nation healthier. The study found that increases in
girls’ education over the last 40 years are responsible for about half of the drop in global under-ve child mortality
(see feature p. 10). Findings like these reinforce why it is so crucial to improve all aspects of children’s health andwell-being. And why UNICEF is not just a relief agency — it is a relief, recovery, child survival, and developmentagency. UNICEF is there long before any disaster strikes, and doesn’t leave when the emergency is over.
Despite our country’s still-difcult economy, you have continued to show unagging generosity toward vulnerable
children worldwide. You can be justly proud that, while charitable giving is still suffering a nationwide slump,
donations to the U.S. Fund are not. We are grateful that you and so many new donors recognize UNICEF — and
the world’s children — as an invaluable investment. Thank you.P.S. To further lend your voice to Haiti’s children, please visit UNICEFHaiti365.org.
