The United Nations Children’s Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 1946 to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II. In 1953 UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations System and its name was shortened from theoriginal United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund but it has continued to be known by the popular acronym based on this old name. Headquartered in New York City UNICEF provides long-term humanitarian and development assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. UNICEF relies on contributions from governments and private donors and UNICEF’s total income for 2006 was $2,781,000,000. UNICEF was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1965 and the prince of Asturias Award of Concord in 2006.
