Our Goodwill Ambassador @davidbeckham joins us in celebrating super dads!
Here’s what he says: "The moments I share with my children are incredibly special. Whether that's laughing together when they tell me things about their day on the drive home from school, reading one of their favourite books to them at bedtime or spending time together on holiday. Through my work with UNICEF I've met so many inspiring dads around the world. Dads who want to ensure their children have the best start in life and will do anything to give them the support and love they need even when faced with huge challenges. Join me in supporting @unicef and share your super dad moment in a photo or video this Father's Day using #EarlyMomentsMatter"

Introducing Sansan, 34 and his absolutely lovely son Juan-Mathis, 9 months. "I am so anxious to go home to meet my son every night. When I see him happy, I am happy. When he is suffering, I am scared. I would like to teach my son to be autonomous, I would encourage him not to be afraid of the unknown, just as my parents did. I see in him a future leader. If in a few years I have a daughter, I see her become an eminent scientist." Share your super dad pic/vid using the hashtag #EarlyMomentsMatter
@UNICEF_ES Ambassador @sr4oficial recently visited Peru to learn more about the work we’re doing to help over 400k children affected by the floods. Inspired, here’s what he said: “Children have the right to be children. Here at Villa Vicus they've told me how the water pump installed by UNICEF changed their lives.” We couldn’t agree more: #foreverychild, a childhood.
Naurajudin, 4, catches a ride in his father’s fire engine in #SierraLeone.
Allieu, a father of three, has been a firefighter for nearly 30 years. Though his job is demanding, he says he tries hard to make time to be with his kids. “I try to go home as early as possible to play with the two younger ones even if for a little bit before they go to bed. I love being in the fire force but I don’t know if any of them will take after me. I’ll let them choose their path.” Share YOUR super dad moment with the hashtag #EarlyMomentsMatter - link in bio.

“When my child is distressed, I gently rock him and sing a song about cattle to him. I give him kisses. He becomes happier, which makes me happier as well.” Abraham tells us as he holds his three-week-old #baby boy Angolere in #Uganda. #EarlyMomentsMatter

Hiba, 12, and her family have just arrived in a makeshift camp for Syrians fleeing escalating violence in rural Raqqa. “I wasn’t scared on the way, I kept thinking that once we get here, I will be safe,” says Hiba who has already experienced airstrikes and mines in her few years of life. “I can read and write but with difficulty,” adds Hiba who has lost four years of education. “I have forgotten almost everything I’ve learned but not my classmates.” #ChildrenUnderAttack#UNICEF/ #Syria 2017/ Delil Souleiman
