And we never give up.
For every child, advocacy
With the aim of building partnership with China to improve the health and well-being of children in the country, while strengthening UNICEF’s partnership with China in support of children around the world, the Every Child Alive and Early Moments Matter campaigns provide an opportunity to connect our work with China under one umbrella.
