The Art of UNICEF Never Gives Up

[Above: Nicolas Fimbari – The Procession – Italy]

The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) provides emergency food and healthcare to children and women in countries that have been devastated by war or other significant emergencies.

UNICEF was created by the United Nations General Assembly on 11 December, 1946 and its first Chairman was Polish physician Ludwick Rajchman.

  • These days UNICEF operates in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights; and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.

UNICEF has been selling greeting cards for over 70 years. These cards are beautifully designed and made with a commitment to sustainable forest management and responsible use of the planet’s natural resources.

  • The image “The Procession – Italy” is from a timeless vintage 1960s Christmas card design for UNICEF by Italian artist Nicolas Fimbari.
