Welcome to Save the Children

In the UK and around the world, we support children to learn, grow and become who they want to be.


45 million children across the world get the food, medicine and education they need.


Over 600,000 supporters, alongside families, nurses, teachers and other workers.


In a world where every child has a chance of the future they deserve. With children, for children, we change the future for good.


More children are surviving their early years than ever before. That’s incredible progress. But our job is far from done - more than 5 million under-fives still die each year. And every death is a tragedy.

Many children like Fatima are fighting hunger and severe acute malnutrition - but they could beat it with the help of life-saving food. Together, we can make sure they get it.

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.
