UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children's rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential to the benefit of a better world.For every child,a champion

At UNICEF Yemen, we are focusing on delivering lifesaving services and supplies for the most vulnerable children and their families. The conflict in Yemen has taken a serious toll on civilians and has exacerbated pre-crisis humanitarian needs. Millions of Yemenis are facing severe food insecurity and malnutrition. The conflict has also destroyed infrastructure and damaged public services. A key achievement of UNICEF Yemen has been to scale-up and improve assistance where it is most needed. We have built mobile health and nutrition teams, are tackling cholera and malnutrition, and are addressing challenges in education, child protection, and overall humanitarian response. Challenges remain, though, and we need dynamic and results-driven people to join our team and help us make sure every child has a champion.
