Education, Protection, and Training are very important programmes being conducted in various countries but the essentials “Water and Food” are the necessary requirements of many children in countries devastated by War, Famine, Flood and Earthquake.
UNICEF helps to provide drinkable water by constructing wells. It also provides water cleaning tablets and sachets that cost only three pence and clean a litre of water almost immediately to give to dehydrated victims of disaster.
