Name: Unique Age: Nine Lives: An­tigua, Caribbean ON 6 Septem­ber, Hur­ri­cane Irma, the strong­est hur­ri­cane ever recorded in the At­lantic, hit the is­lands of the East­ern Caribbean, in­clud­ing An­tigua, where Unique is from.

20,000 chil­dren live on the col­lec­tion of is­lands, and 132 schools have been dam­aged. How­ever, Unique is de­fi­ant in the face of the de­struc­tion caused by Irma. “My mum says that Irma did not de­feat us.”

UNICEF is work­ing in An­tigua, dis­tribut­ing ed­u­ca­tional and recre­ational sup­plies, and sup­port­ing sports, creative work­shops and other ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren. To find out more about how UNICEF is help­ing chil­dren in the Caribbean, visit
