URGENT: Children across the Horn of Africa are dying from hunger.


Charity organisations

Every child deserves a bright future with a safe and happy childhood. Make a difference to children in need by donating to charity organisations today.

There are many vulnerable people in the world who rely on help and support from charity organisations, and children are among those who need help the most. Below find out how, as one of the world’s leading children’s charity organisations, we help millions of children in need and their families across the globe.
For over 100 years, Save the Children has been championing children’s rights. We believe every child has the right to survival, protection, development and participation. We have grown into a global charity organisation helping children in over 117 countries. Here is more about what we do as a children’s charity organisation and how you can get involved with a local charity organisation in your area.

How Do We Help Children Through Our Charity Organisation?

There are two main arms of the support and aid we provide to children in need and their families:

  • Emergency response - We have teams that are ready to go to provide immediate aid and support to children affected by humanitarian emergencies and crises. We have teams on the ground providing life-saving essentials and ongoing protection & support in countries all around the world.
  • Programs - Our programs focus on ensuring children are protected from harm and have access to opportunities that enable them to have the best start in life so they can reach their full potential. We work in partnership with local communities, all levels of government, other NGOs, community and advocacy groups, corporate partners and individual donors to create positive, long-lasting change for children, families and their communities.

Supporting Local Charity Organisations

Our programs run in many countries around the world, but also here in Australia. There are many children in Australia, with many living in remote areas that have limited or no access to support and services.

If you would like to get involved with a local charity organisation, here is how you can help in your local area:
