UNICEF in Malaysia

Our work for children in Malaysia started in 1954, before Independence. Our focus areas today include:
parenting, nutrition, education, child poverty, bullying, child marriage, digital citizenship and safety, and child participation.

Our History

UNICEF was born from the ashes of World War II on 11 December 1946. Originally known as the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, our very first mission was to provide milk, food, and medicine to children left hungry and homeless by war. Today, UNICEF stands for the United Nations Children’s Fund.
