Why Save the Children?

In 2017, your donations enabled us to help 13 million children in 63 countries around the world, including here in the UK.

By choosing to donate to Save the Children you join us as we stand side by side with children in the toughest places to be a child. We do whatever it takes to make sure children survive, get protection when they’re in danger, and have the chance to learn.

You can find out more about how we protect children, give them a healthy start and the chance to learn by reading more about what we do here.

Other ways to donate

Donate to Save the Children via SMS (text message). You’ll be charged £3 or £5 plus the cost of one standard rate text message in the first month and we will receive 100% of your donation.

The impact of donations in 2017

Last year, we helped bring 1.6 million children out of extreme poverty. You can help. A £37 donation could pay for chickens for a family in Afghanistan, providing them with a vital source of income. 

We fight relentlessly to keep children safe. In 2017 our teams helped 323,000 vulnerable children. Even relatively small amounts can make a huge difference to continue this vital work. A donation of £19 could provide an emergency shelter kit with tarpaulin and rope to make sure displaced children have a roof over their heads.

We continue to tackle child mortality, even in the places that are hardest to reach. Our health and nutrition programmes reached 10.6 million children in 2017, yet our work is far from over. A £44 donation could pay for a healthy baby hamper for a new born child in Uganda.

We’re transforming the lives of children through education. Last year, our education programmes helped 841,000 children. A donation of £10 could buy an early years book for a child affected by the Syrian crisis attending pre-school in Lebanon.
