When crisis follows crisis, children need our protection and support more than ever.
In Vanuatu, Tropical Cyclone Lola has caused significant damage, with children and families losing homes and seeking shelter in evacuation centres. Hundreds of schools have been impacted, at a time when older students are preparing to sit examinations. Tragically, there are reports of loss of lives. Save the Children’s response includes distribution of shelter and hygiene kits, as well as setting up Child Friendly Spaces and Temporary Learning Centres for children.
The emergency in Vanuatu comes as the escalation in violence in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel continues to threaten children’s lives and wellbeing.
We know from previous experience that in any crisis, children are always the most at risk.
It's vital to take action today. Please donate now and help innocent children caught up in emergencies.
