Happy Birthday UNICEF

63 years ago today, UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) was created by the general assembly to provide food, clothing and health care to the children victims of World War Two. Seven years later the UNGA extended the mandate indefinitely with the goal:

…to advocate for the protection of children’s rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.Source: UNICEF Mission Statement

Congratulations on your first 63 years. I hope the next 63 allows for even more progress in attempting to make the world a better place for all children.
