When children have to flee their home due to a crisis, they might pack their clothes, phone, or favourite toy.

But they can’t pack security, a stable income, a safe place to play or learn, or someone to fight for their rights.

That is what Save the Children is here for. We provide what they can't fit in a bag.

In times of crisis, we are always among the first organisations to deliver life-saving support for children and their families. We partner with local organisations wherever possible to ensure our responses are locally driven, allowing us to build trust and gain access to hard to reach communities.

We stand side by side with children in the world's toughest places. Learn about the 7 ways we're protecting children in crisis in 2024
