UNICEF For Every Child!

United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) was formed back in 1946 to meet the emergency needs of children. It has headquarters in New York, United State. UNICEF is running in more than 190 countries and territories to find and help the most disadvantaged children and adolescents and to protect the rights of every child. Now coming to Turkey UNICEF has found in research that there are still many children who are suffering and are still vulnerable to violence, abuse, exploitation, and most of these children belong to the refugess. In Turkey, UNICEF aims to targets the group of children who are at risk or are vulnerable and are left unprivileged from their rights. The government of Turkey invested considerable efforts in developing comprehensive child welfare and protection policies. The longstanding cooperation between UNICEF and the ministries of Family, Labour and Social Services (MoFLSS), the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and other national institutions focuses on further strengthening national child protection systems for child care and justice for children, with the aim of serving all children living in Turkey, including refugee children.
