United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF)

The United Nations International Children's Fund's mission is to reach every child and ensure their well-being, no matter where they are in this world. There’s no limit to the lengths UNICEF will go, the risks they will take or the depth of their commitment to save children’s lives. By plane, boat or foot, they reach the poorest, most vulnerable children in the world’s most inaccessible places, bringing them simple, life-saving essentials like vaccines and clean water.



World Health Organization (WHO)

WHO works with governments and various organizations from all around the world to combat diseases and strive to promote physical and mental well-being. The work of World Health Organization officials includes everything from improving local public health services to notifying member countries of latest breakthroughs in medical research. The first director general of WHO, Brock Chisholm, was in fact, a Canadian physician born in Oakville, Ontario.
