Current emergencies 

Whether it's a cyclone, flood, tsunami or conflict, we do whatever it takes to reach children and their families with life-saving aid.

When disaster strikes

Save the Children responds to more than 100 emergencies every year. Some unfold rapidly. Others, like Syria, are protracted with no immediate end in sight. Whether it's a cyclone, flood, tsunami or conflict, we do whatever it takes to reach children and their families with life-saving aid.

With so many emergencies happening around the world right now, here are just five of the biggest we're currently responding to:
