Putting Children First
Our incredible Gifts in Wills supporters are helping to build a better world for every child. They come from all walks of life and have different experiences. What brings them together is the desire to contribute to long-term change for children like Yasser (pictured on the right) through a gift in their Will.
“I love meeting my friends, playing with them in the yard and exchanging information about what we’ve learned during the day,” says Yasser, right, at a school rehabilitated by UNICEF in Douma, Rural Damascus.”
We will use your gift wisely and cost-effectively, so it has the greatest impact. Among our vital programmes such as lifesaving food and vaccinations, UNICEF is committed to ensuring that every child receives an education that allows them to achieve their true potential.

After I have gone, somewhere in this world, I hope I might help UNICEF give the gift of life to a child, or educate them, or just maybe make them forget the horrors that surround them for an all too brief time, and play.

Sue has been supporting UNICEF for 40 years
It was 1978 when Sue and her late husband, Robin were first introduced to UNICEF after a chance encounter with one of our ads. “What struck us both was that these children across the world didn’t have and don’t have the choice that we have.”
When Robin passed away in 1991 he continued his support for UNICEF by leaving a gift in his Will.
Leaving a gift in your Will can seem daunting but you can be assured that UNICEF will always be here to support you. Sue says: “UNICEF will always tell you exactly what they are spending the money on. So that encourages me to leave money in my Will to this organisation.”
“I know that there are many children that will benefit from that money.”
