In 2018, the Save the Children global movement reached 40.8 million children across 118 countries including here in the UK, thanks to the help of supporters like you.
We helped 27.6 million children survive through our movement's health and nutrition work. In 2018 we fought to give every child the chance to survive and thrive by providing life-saving public health in humanitarian emergencies, tackling pneumonia - the single largest cause of death in children worldwide, and fighting malnutrition. You can help. A £33 donation could provide one week's worth of ready to eat rations for a family of five in Syria.
We supported 8 million children to learn through our movement's education programmes. In 2018 we supported UK parents to take a more active role in their children's early development, and helped them build a home environment fit for children to learn in. We set up learning spaces in conflict zones and delivered education to refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Bangladesh and Uganda. A donation of £43.50 could pay for the construction of hand-washing facilities protecting children at school in Ethiopia from disease.
We fought relentlessly to protect 2.9 million children through our movement's protection programmes and spoke up for millions more around the world. We treated life-threatening injuries and helped children recover from their horrific experiences. We worked to prevent at-risk children from being forced into armed groups and reunited children with their families. We stepped up our responses to both the brutal war in Yemen and the aftermath of the appalling atrocities inflicted on Rohingya children. A £53 donation could support one month of community volunteers outreach activities in increasing safety for children in communities.
