Over the past two years UNICEF has provided equipment for six Beslan schools to accommodate children from School Number One and for the two new Beslan schools, psychological counseling, and support for a Family Centre to help families care for those children who have been distressed by the crisis.
For 60 years UNICEF has been the world’s leader for children, working on the ground in 156 countries and territories to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.
