This information seems to be unsourced and undated and therefore unreliable. 

The true facts have been documented at Snopes.com ...

along with numerous expense benefits. 




UNICEF CEO Caryl M. Stern receives $1,900,000 per year (158K) per month,
plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE. Less than 5 cents (4.4 cents) per
