A Message from the U.S. Fund Board Chair and President
Dear Friend of UNICEF, As someone sharply attuned to child survival issues, you have likely been following the dire malnutrition and famine crisis in the Horn of Africa. This is a crisis of staggering scale, impacting children in Somalia, Ethiopia,Kenya, and Djibouti.Imagine the heartache of the mothers and fathers who — starving themselves — are watching their children suffer,wither, and beg for food that is not there. The worst drought in 60 years has killed their livestock and turned their 
 elds to dust. Right now, in several regions of Somalia, one in ve children is at exceptionally high risk of death.
But thanks to you, help is available. UNICEF has been providing emergency therapeutic food in refugee campsand feeding centers, and immunizing children against the diseases that prey upon young malnourished bodies.
UNICEF’s decades’ worth of expertise in drought and famine relief mean it is making a signicant difference
(see p. 10).Of course, even as we focus on this still-escalating crisis, we remain committed to all the children suffering in “silentemergencies” — those like preventable disease and unsafe water. But last month, we were able to share some wonderfulnews on that front. The number of children dying each day from preventable causes has dropped yet again — from22,000 to 21,000. It is a testament to your generous support of UNICEF’s overall child survival work, funded through
unrestricted donations including the contributions you make to our General Fund (see box on p. 12).
 As we head into the holiday season, there are so many ways to show your support for UNICEF and the world’schildren (see p. 7). We encourage you to celebrate our partnership by sending UNICEF holiday cards. We also hope
you’ll join us at one of the U.S. Fund’s many upcoming events, including our New York agship gala, the UNICEF Snowake Ball, and the UNICEF Ball in Los Angeles.
No matter how you stand up for the world’s most vulnerable children this season, we are, as always, deeply gratefulto have you by our side. Thank you.P.S. To browse and order UNICEF holiday cards, please visit unicefusa.org/holidaycards.
