Hurricane Irma is the most powerful hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic.

After tearing its way across a string of Caribbean islands and up through Florida, Hurricane Irma has left behind a trail of devastation.

In Florida alone, 4 million children are at risk in Hurricane Irma's path throughout the state. 5.6 million people have been told to evacuate Florida - 1 million of them children.

Since arriving at Florida, reports now suggest it could go as far inland as Missouri.

Save the Children’s Emergency Health Unit - a surge team of nurses and doctors deployed to the heart of disasters in their critical first stages - is on standby in the Caribbean to help victims of the hurricane.

This kind of critical response is only possible because of our Emergency Fund. In the last month, the Fund has also allowed us to respond to devastating emergencies in Sierra Leone and South Asia that have affected over 17 million children.

We are also conducting field assessments in the hurricane's path and will continue to work with affected countries' health ministries to coordinate response efforts.

With your support, we can make sure that children caught up in Hurricane Irma, as well as in other emergencies around the world, receive the help they desperately need. Please donate now.

Our teams are on the ground, doing everything we can to prepare for the storm and respond immediately as required, to protect vulnerable children.

Donate now to help us provide relief to children affected by Hurricane Irma, and other disasters like it around the world.
