We have been made aware of the fact that Yesmap's (now disabled) Matrix server was entered under false pretenses by the hostile editor of a supposed "MAP" website some months ago. While some screenshots/logs have been shared (including those of members suffering from mental-health and legal problems), no personally identifying information has been leaked. We are currently compiling a dossier of malicious and criminal activity we believe the publishers of this website are responsible for, and will soon publish and promote it.

UNICEF (active as of 11 December 1946) is the United Nations Children's Emergency Fund, a United Nations agency responsible for providing humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide. They are funded predominantly by governments (the US and Germany chief among them), but also to some extent by the World Bank, and private donors (its own National Committees, other NGOs, foundations and individuals).[1] UNICEF's programs emphasize developing community-level services to promote the health and well-being of children. Most of its work is in the field, with a network that includes 150 country offices, headquarters and other facilities, and 34 "national committees" that carry out its mission through programs developed with host governments.

UNICEF are involved in implementing the UNCRC.

Of relevance to MAPs

The report published by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) addresses how government policy can be used to protect children from harmful, abusive and violent content online. Its conclusion is based on a European study of 19 EU countries that found in most countries, most children who saw pornographic images were “neither upset nor happy.” In fact, the report UNICEF relies on says that 39 percent of Spanish children were happy after seeing pornography.[2][3]

  • In 2018, the British press interviewed a former Chief of Operations on what he claimed to be widespread "pedophile" tendencies among UNICEF workers:[4]

“There are tens of thousands of aid workers around the world with pedophile tendencies, but if you wear a UNICEF T-shirt, nobody will ask what you’re up to," Andrew MacLeod, the former chief of operations at the UN's Emergency Co-ordination Center, said in an interview with british tabloid The Sun on Monday, adding that an estimated 60,000 cases of sexual exploitation had been comitted over the last decade by 3,300 pedophiles working in the organization.

“Child rape crimes are being inadvertently funded, in part, by United Kingdom tax-payers,” he added.

  • In 2018, news of Peter Newell's jailing for alleged sex with a 13 year old boy over 5 decades prior, caused serious embarrassment for the charity. Newell was a leading children's rights campaigner who worked for UNICEF, led the UK's anti smacking campaign and helped prepare UNICEF's Implementation Handbook for the Convention on the Rights of the Child.[5]
  • In 1988, sixteen people, including a former UNICEF official, were convicted of participating in a child sex ring that used a lab in the cellar of a UNICEF office to develop pictures of children in "obscene acts". Jozef Verbeeck, former director of the Brussels office of the U.N. Children's Fund, was sentenced by a Belgian district court to two years in prison for his part in the scandal.[6]

Strategic Alignment and Risk of Censorship ratings

UNICEF has a Yesmap SAR of 3/5 (neutral), and the ROC has been assessed at 3/5 (low, but with a high risk of bias).
