  • Added Date: Wednesday, 22 January 2020
  • Deadline Date: Friday, 31 January 2020

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, hope

DPR Korea is a low-income country with a highly centralized, planned economy. It operates under heavy international sanctions and has a highly charged and visible political context. It has experienced serious shortages of food and energy, a reduction in economic growth rates, as well as recurring climate-related challenges resulting in a severe, chronic, and underfunded humanitarian emergency. Despite the exemption granted to humanitarian assistance, the imposition of sanctions, coupled with donor fatigue, has reduced the availability of resources to address even the most pressing of life-threatening situations.
