Today, 73 years ago, UNICEF was born (December 11, 1946) to help the children of 2nd Europe’s World War. From 1949 until the end of the 1960s, but also in emergencies, UNICEF assisted and supported children in Greece, providing them with medicines, educational materials, pasteurized milk, food and more.
Today, with children in Greece of crisis, UNICEF continues to support and protect the rights of children in our country.
The Charter of the Rights of the Child states:
