Hurricane Harvey has left more than 1 million children in Texas unable to start school, with up to 3 million impacted across the region. UNICEF USA has pledged to support the ongoing rebuilding efforts, focused on schools and educational systems in Texas. Our priority is helping to get all children back to school and back to learning.
Harvey devastated millions of lives in a matter of minutes, hours and days. Yet the recovery will take weeks, months and even years. We are committed to this effort and are in it for the long haul. We look forward to sharing more throughout this process. In the interim, anyone can help us fill a backpack for a child in need, including those affected by Harvey.
