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 2021, the Save the Children movement reached 43m children in 118 countries including the UK, thanks to supporters like you.

We helped 26.5m children survive through our movement's health and nutrition work. We and our partners:

  • tackled pneumonia – the single largest infectious killer of young children worldwide. Inspiring extra global funding, pushing to make vaccines more available and providing oxygen to children struggling to breathe
  • fought undernutrition – supporting community-based work in Kenya, South Sudan, Afghanistan and Yemen to diagnose, treat and prevent malnutrition. Enabling families and caregivers to detect acute malnutrition themselves, vital for those who live hours from the nearest health centre or cannot afford to pay for care

We supported 12.2m 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 4.1m children through our movement's protection programmes and spoke up for millions more around the world.  In 2021, 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:

  • we supported Afghan refugees arriving in the UK. We offered them specialist mental health care and urged the UK government to deliver a genuinely supportive resettlement scheme.
  • as violence continued to rage in Syria, we provided life-saving food, health services, psychological support, education and protection to thousands of children.
  • in 2020 and 2021, pressure from public campaigns such as those led by the Save the Children movement contributed to bringing about changes in the law, prohibiting child marriage in the Dominican Republic, the Philippines and Katsina state in Nigeria.
