With children's endless energy and the determination of supporters like you, we're helping create a fairer world. In the UK and around the world, we make sure children keep safe, healthy and learning. With children, for children, we change the future for good.

Together we power possible. Discover more about what we do here.

Don't Let Progress Go Backwards

Through kindness, determination and teamwork, together we've made the world a better place for children. 

But because of the triple threat of conflict, COVID and the climate crisis, that progress could go backwards for the first time in decades.

Your donation can help get progress for children back on track. Here's the plan:

“Every time I hear the word ‘war’, I get really scared. It’s only a three-letter word but it has a lot of meaning.”  

Samir's* growing up in the Gaza Strip.

He excels at school and - with the support of our counselling sessions - has learned how to cope with living in a warzone.

Around the world - from the Gaza Strip, to Ukraine, to Yemen - children are growing up in conflict. 

To make sure they can look to a better future, we have to:

  • Support families with life-saving basics like food, shelter and clothes
  • Set up more education facilities
  • Give mental health support to help children recover
  • Set up safe spaces where kids can play, learn, and just be kids
  • Keep pushing world leaders to make children off-limits in war

“I liked my school and now it is closed.”

Inspiring Muna* loves school. She wants to be a teacher when she’s older. 

But severe water shortages forced people to abandon Muna’s town in Somalia - including her teachers.

So we’re making sure she has clean water, healthcare, and learning materials to keep growing.

To help children keep growing through the climate crisis, we must:

  • Get clean water to drought-hit communities
  • Help families adapt, like growing crops that aren’t reliant on rain
  • Keep children learning during climate-related disasters
  • Set up warning systems to help communities prepare for shocks
  • Make sure leaders listen to children on climate change

After visiting her local Save the Children-supported food pantry in Manchester during lockdown, Mum of three Gemma is now volunteering to help other struggling families.

After two tough years, we need to:

  • Get all children back in school
  • Make sure everyone can access vaccines
  • Help children catch up on routine jabs
  • Support health services still under pressure

Meet Fantastic Fatima*

Fatima smiles and laughs at the camera. She is nine months old in this picture and wearing an orange and white top.

*names changed

At just 9 months old, severe malnutrition left Fatima too weak to stand. But with the determination and strength of her mum, she was able to get vital treatment and nutritious food from a Save the Children-supported health centre.  

Five months on, she blossomed into a healthy baby - walking and playing with big sister, Fatun*.

With the right support, there are endless opportunities for kids like Fatima. A donation from people like you can help more children like her get the life-saving treatment they need.

Together we power possible. Donate Now.

The impact of donations

In 2020, the Save the Children movement reached 44.9m children in 117 countries including the UK, thanks to supporters like you.

Our COVID-19 response in 2020 supported 29.5m children and adults across 87 countries. In the UK we supported 10,000 vulnerable children with emergency grants, including early-learning packs, vouchers, toys and essential household furniture like children’s beds.

We helped 27.9m children survive through our movement's health and nutrition work. We and our partners:

  • delivered life-saving healthcare and nutrition to 9m children in humanitarian emergencies
  • tackled pneumonia – the single largest infectious killer of young children worldwide – by helping to supply children in hospital with oxygen, make life-saving vaccines more widely available, and convene global health experts and decision-makers to find new ways of fighting the disease
  • fought undernutrition – by warning the world of the additional child malnutrition deaths the coronavirus pandemic threatens to cause and rolling out a new method of malnutrition detection in Kenya.

We supported 12m children to learn through our movement's education programmes. We worked with communities, partners and governments to:

  • make sure children living in conflicts and emergencies – including refugee children – can get the education they tell us is their number one priority
  • fight for girls’ right to an education and tackle obstacles – such as child marriage – that stand in their way
  • improve learning for children during their crucial early years – around the world and among the UK’s poorest communities – when it can make the biggest difference.

We fought relentlessly to protect 3.1m children through our movement's protection programmes and spoke up for millions more around the world.  In 2020, we worked with our partners to help children on the frontline of some of the world’s worst conflicts and in contexts where children are at risk of harm:

  • pushing for peace in Yemen, the repatriation of children trapped in Syria and justice for the persecuted Rohingya communities of Myanmar
  • providing expert psychological support for Palestinian children who’ve endured Israeli military detention and those left emotionally scarred by the massive explosion in Beirut
  • training community volunteers in India to protect children at high-risk of abuse.
