The impact of donations

In 2019, the Save the Children global movement reached 38.7 million children across 117 countries including here in the UK, thanks to the help of supporters like you.

We helped 26.8 million children survive through our movement's health and nutrition work. We delivered critical care to children cut off by Cyclone Idai and responded to the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo . We campaigned to push pneumonia up the global health agenda, while on the ground we launched a major new programme to fight the disease in Nigeria. We kicked off our Global Malnutrition Initiative to pilot innovative approaches to tackling the issue in conflict-affected states. And we stepped up our own programmes – from cash payments for pregnant women in Myanmar to life-saving treatment for children in Somalia. A £33 donation could provide one week's worth of ready to eat rations for a family of five in Syria.

We supported 7.7 million children to learn through our movement's education programmes. We gave parents in Tanzania the tools to better support early learning and development, and prepared thousands of children in Mozambique for education at our new pre-schools. We pushed for extra funding needed to get refugee children back into school and set up learning spaces for those in crises in Uganda, Myanmar and the occupied Palestinian territory. And in the UK, we push for every child to get the best start in life through support for early years learning and our campaign for affordable childcare. 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 3.4 million children through our movement's protection programmes and spoke up for millions more around the world.  We helped protect children from Yemen to Mozambique, from India to Madagascar. Trained case workers kept children safe from abuse or helped abused children get expert care. When children and families were separated during a disaster, we worked to reunite them. In the midst of war, we provided safe spaces where children could play and learn, and – for the worst-affected – get specialist psychological support. We worked to combat harmful practices like female genital mutilation and forced marriage. A £53 donation could support one month of community volunteers outreach activities in increasing safety for children in communities.

How your support helps children like Fatima*

At just nine months old, severe malnutrition left Fatima too weak to stand. Her mum took her to a Save the Children-supported health centre where Fatima got urgent treatment and nutritious food.

Five months on, she's thriving, walking and playing with her family.
