Children are the forgotten victims of the pandemic. COVID has severely affected not just children’s health but has caused many of them to drop out of school. Family incomes are badly hit and so is children’s nutrition and health including timely immunisation. With lockdowns being relaxed, things will improve but will not get back to normal for a very long time – during which time lives, educations and futures will be lost. Help us protect our most vulnerable children. The pandemic has shown that every child is at risk. Let’s reimagine our children’s future. Join NDTV and UNICEF’s special campaign, ‘Reimagine Our Children’s Future.’
The campaign aims to help protect the most vulnerable children affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Without immediate funding and key lifesaving interventions like health care, nutrition, and immunization, an additional 1,600 children could die in India everyday over the next six months as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to weaken health systems and disrupt routine services. Without our interventions and investments – of ideas, resources and heart – these children will have no future. It is in our hands to ensure that these forgotten victims of a catastrophic global crisis are given a future.

Here’s how the money raised through this campaign will be utilised.
We need to reimagine tomorrow, we need to reimagine our children’s future. Without our interventions and investments – of ideas, resources and heart – these children will have no future.
COVID is not just a health crisis. It is a child rights crisis, affecting children’s lives in all ways imaginable.
