Support our Emergency Fund
When a disaster strikes, there’s no time to lose. We don’t know where the next emergency will hit, but our Emergency Fund allows us to act quickly, so that more children can be saved. Help us save lives by making a donation today.
The faster we respond, the more lives we savex
Most lives are lost in first days after an emergency strikes – the quicker we respond, the more lives we save.
Sometimes emergencies get ignored by the media, despite the suffering of thousands of children. Not only does our Emergency Fund provide us with the money needed to help when disaster strikes, it also means that we can respond quickly to other overlooked emergencies.
In 2011, we responded to 45 emergencies but only launched six public appeals. We would not have been able to respond to all these disasters without our Emergency Fund. Please help us replenish it and donate today.
With every pound donated, we can raise another seven
And when potential donors see we’re already active on the ground, they’ll often provide more funding – helping us reach even more children. Giving us £1 allows us to leverage an additional £7 from other donors.
In 2011, our fund reached more than 1.2 million children. We want to reach millions more. We need your help to do this.
