UNICEF play important role



UNICEF stood originally for the United Nations International Children's Emergency  Fund. But! now it is the United Nations Children's Fund which gives long-term help  to children of| developing nations. It runs several welfare projects in Bangladesh. It  has established numerous maternity and baby care centres around the country to  ensure the health of babies and child-bearing mothers. It has organised training  programmes to create rural health workers. Through awareness-raising activities  about health and nutrition, this organisation has been able to reduce infant mortality  rates in Bangladesh. Besides, in times of disasters like cyclones, flood, and famine, it  undertakes humanitarian work to help the affected people. To facilitate education,  UNICEF distributes reading and writing materials among students, trains teachers and  promotes primary education particularly among girls. It also assists a variety of  rehabilitation programmes in Bangladesh.
