How your donations can help

The COVID 19 pandemic threatens children's futures at home and abroad. Your support means we can help more of them stay protected, healthy and educated.

  • £10 could go towards a supermarket voucher for a family in Britain to make sure kids don't go hungry.
  • £39 could buy handwashing kits to families to help protect themselves against COVID-19.
  • £85 could provide one severely malnourished child with medicine and therapeutic food at an outpatient clinic for a month. 
  • £188 could pay for a temporary learning centre for a school or community in Afghanistan to make sure kids don’t miss out on their education.

Devastating for Children

As coronavirus spreads globally, it continues to hit the world's most vulnerable families hardest. Despite the incredible progress with vaccines, the pandemic's impact is worsening. Unless we act now, millions will go hungry, lack lifesaving healthcare and, miss out on life-changing education. With your support we can help every child reach their full potential.

Why Save the Children?

With the help of our supporters, Save the Children has been helping children survive and flourish for more than 100 years. 

At the onset of the pandemic last year we launched one of our biggest ever responses; from life-saving COVID treatment centres and providing PPE in Yemen to providing medical information and running health facilities in Bangladesh.

And here in Britain, we have our emergency grants which have helped over 10,000 children, supplying learning packs, food vouchers, household items, gifts in kind and Argos vouchers.
