UNICEF Executive Director, Henrietta Fore said, “Some 3.2 million children in Venezuela need humanitarian aid as conditions across the country continue to deteriorate. We are ramping up our work to help children and families who are struggling against food shortages and limited access to essential services like healthcare, safe water and education.”
At least 4.3 million people across Venezuela do not have access to safe drinking water; vaccine-preventable diseases including measles and diphtheria have re-emerged, while yellow fever and malaria are on the rise. An estimated 1.3 million children and adolescents need protection services, while over 1 million children are out of school.

In line with the 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) for Venezuela launched by the United Nations and its partners, UNICEF’s priorities for the remainder of the year include:
- Providing 800,000 people with access to safe drinking water;
- Continuing to rehabilitate the vaccine cold chain;
- Vaccinating more than 1,200,000 children under 5 years against measles;
- Ensuring treatment for 7,000 children under 5 years suffering from severe or moderate malnutrition;
- Distributing education materials to 680,000 children aged 4-18 years;
- Reaching 216,000 children with psychosocial and protection support; and
- Providing over 170,000 pregnant women and newborn babies with health assistance.
These efforts build on UNICEF’s existing programmatic reach which has increased steadily over the past year to meet the growing needs of the most vulnerable children. Since 2018, UNICEF has shipped nearly 200 tons of basic health, nutrition, education, water and sanitation relief supplies to Venezuela.
