Climate crisis: a deadly threat to children.

Children in Somalia are on the brink of famine as the country faces its worst drought in 40 years.

Devastating floods in Pakistan have killed nearly 500 children.

We help children and their families when emergency strikes. Together we can be there for children.

Save the Children

Around the world, too many children still start life at a disadvantage simply because of who they are and where they are from.

We are gravely concerned for children around the world caught in the middle of armed conflict in countries such as Afghanistan and Ukraine.

A perfect storm of COVID-19, conflict and the climate crisis has left children vulnerable to critical levels of hunger and poverty. They are facing the worst global food crisis in decades.

Their right to survival, protection and education is under immediate threat. But, we can do something about it. Help us protect children to ensure they not only survive but thrive.
