Our emergency work
Save the Children is a world leader in responding to humanitarian emergencies
, and we do whatever it takes to support the hardest-to-reach children affected by disasters around the world.
We provide food and help severely malnourished children get back to a healthier weight. We provide clean water to those in urgent need and to make sure disease doesn't spread. We provide rapid, life-saving healthcare including emergency operations, treatment for killer diseases such as cholera and malaria, and vital vaccinations.
When families have been torn apart during conflict or disasters, we reunite children with their relatives. When homes have been destroyed, we help families set up temporary shelter.
We also set up safe spaces for children so they have somewhere to play, learn and get emotional support to help them cope with what they've been through.
