In this times of lockdown I see that Wargames Illustrated are producing a two weeklyish Bite-size magazine of 70 pages, it can be bought by anyone for £2.00 GBP (with £1.50 GBP going to UNICEF) or free to subscribers/Prime members.
Really impressed with it!

Wasn't there a child sex scandal at UNICEF last year?

You'd think you could find a better charity.

Considering the scale of UNICEF's operations, and the benefits, is that scandal a justification for completely cutting off support?

Misconduct is always going to occur. The organization's response tells whether it's worth supporting. The linked article shows the appropriate response.

No thanks, I do not support anything from the UN. I will give to other charities.

"Accountability
Unicef UK is a charity, entirely funded by our supporters. We receive no money from the UN budget."
