The world has made incredible progress for children: since 1990, we’ve reduced the number of under 5 deaths by more than half. But there are still so many children to reach who’ve been forgotten because they live on the streets, in camps or remote villages; discriminated against because of their gender, ethnicity or a disability. Help us reach the most vulnerable children with what they need most: life-saving healthcare and education (link in bio.)
