Brazil will donate US$ 1.2 million to United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) projects. The Brazilian funds will finance humanitarian cooperation projects in eleven countries (Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, El Salvador, Haiti, Kazakhstan, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Rwanda and Somalia) and disaster risk reduction activities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Each initiative will receive US$ 100,000.
The Brazilian contribution aims at ensuring that social groups that are particularly vulnerable, such as children, adolescents and women, continue to receive the appropriate humanitarian cooperation. The Brazilian donation will be employed by UNICEF in partnership with non-governmental organizations.
