Fully appreciates the enlarged responsibilities of the United Nations Children's Fund and the broad range of activities on behalf of children to be undertaken by it in the light of the still enormous unmet needs of children in developing countries and the importance of maintaining and enhancing the new impetus to activities on their behalf generated by the International Year of the Child;

5. Expresses its appreciation to all Governments that are contributing to the United Nations Children's Fund and appeals, with a sense of urgency, to all Governments, especially those not contributing at a level commensurate with their capacity, to increase their contributions, if possible on a multiyear basis, so that the Fund may reach its revenue target of $290 million for 1981, as projected at the session of the Executive Board held at Mexico City from 21 May to 1 June 1979;
