Donations Urgently Needed for April Rummage Sale

The United Nations is struggling to find sufficient resources to meet the needs of the high volume of refugees.  UNA-SA needs your help contributing to this humanitarian effort.  All funds will be directed to UNICEF's work in the refugee camps.

 We are especially looking for ethnic items: jewelry, art, rugs, baskets, textiles,  bags, ethnic clothes, books, CDs, and small furniture items.  Please, no everyday clothes.

Matching Donation to UNHCR

We are pleased to announce that UNA-SA's December 29, 2016 donation of $11,077.00 to USA for UNHCR (United Nations Refugee Agency) will be doubled through a matching funds donation program from Airbnb. In these cold winter months and after the recent exodus from Aleppo, the needs of refugees are even greater.

Thank You From UNICEF


"One year ago today, the first of two devastating earthquakes struck Nepal. With the United Nations Association of Southern Arizona’s support, UNICEF has made great strides in helping the children of Nepal survive, recover, and maintain hope for a brighter future. We are grateful for the long-standing partnership we have had with your chapter.
 
I wanted to mark this anniversary by sharing a thank you video with you, narrated by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Orlando Bloom, and you can find more information on UNICEF’s recovery efforts in Nepal at www.movingon.org.np/.
 
Thank you to the UNA of Southern Arizona community for helping UNICEF to provide children affected by the earthquake with immediate access to nutrition, water, and education; to reunite unaccompanied children with their families; to vaccinate more than half a million kids against life-threating diseases; and to help Nepal build back stronger than before."
