Today, on National Sorry Day, we acknowledge the terrible harm that successive Australian policies have caused to the Stolen Generations. We remember children torn from their mothers, brothers, community and culture. We bear witness to their enduring pain and above all, we recognise that saying 'sorry' means we have to change. Today, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are nine...

It took 12 hours for Margaret and her daughter to reach the only children's hospital in Juba, South Sudan. They got there just in time - little Naomi had severe malnutrition and needed urgent medical attention. Thankfully, the treatment worked and Naomi is on her way to recovery. As famine strikes parts of the country, UNICEF is racing to help 250,000 children like her survive, recover and grow.

The world has lost one of its great champions for children – and the entire UNICEF family has lost a great friend. As an actor, Sir Roger Moore was the epitome of cool sophistication but in his work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, he was a passionate advocate for children. All of us at UNICEF extend our deepest sympathies to the Moore family and join his many admirers in paying tribute to his...

"I don’t think I will ever get used to seeing a child die in her mother’s arms. But at the same time, I will never tire of watching life return to a child once we reach her with our emergency nutrition."

Incredible things happen in this hospital. It's a place of hope for children like Simon who arrive with malnutrition - a disease that can cause permanent stunting and even death. Therapeutic milk is giving him a life-saving boost of energy and micronutrients, and a chance to grow up healthy. As famine overwhelms parts of South Sudan, UNICEF is working tirelessly to reach more and more children...

Mary came to this hospital in South Sudan with an urgent problem: she wasn't producing breastmilk and her baby, Idia, was severely malnourished. A simple technique changed everything. Staff showed Mary how to run a small tube from a bowl of therapeutic milk to her nipple, allowing her baby to get immediate, life-saving nutrition while also suckling to stimulate the breast. Before long, Mary...

"Whenever you bring any property to the market you get so little money and now you can't buy anything. Our crops are little and everyday we must sell them for less and less." - Nyanut, mother of three, South Sudan.

"We used to farm sorghum but the drought has kept me from harvesting. We lost all our harvest this year because there was no good rain and the little food we have can't feed us for one more month." - Anyang, 19, South Sudan.

"The money is finished now. After we eat this I don't know what we will do." - Agontong, South Sudan. Conflict and harsh weather have ruined local farming, driven the price of food staples nearly ten times higher and thrown parts of the country into famine. Children are on the brink of starvation but UNICEF is working to save as many lives as we can, as fast as we can.

"I asked to return to school because I want to continue learning French so that I can work," she says. "I would like to get a good job - one that would pay for a big house for my whole family."

"I went to school a little when I was a young girl so I can do some maths. But I stopped going to school when I was about eight years old. Some women are too ashamed to go back to school. They say they are too old. I think they are wrong. You are never too old to learn. It is the future of our children." - Peka, 25, Côte d'Ivoire.

There will be a brief reprieve as the aid budget stabilises over the next two years and some welcome increases to emergency and education funds. But there's a terrible change ahead: by...

16% of the Federal Budget will be spent on education, health care and support for children. This investment will reap huge returns for individual children and entire communities but we must ensure no child is left behind. Today, 730,000 children under the age of 15 are living in poverty throughout Australia - that’s nearly one in every six children in the country. They need more help to break...
