When a disaster strikes, we have to act fast to save children’s lives.
Conflict and natural disasters threaten millions of children’s lives and well-being every year and the humanitarian needs are greater today than ever before.
Right now, 357 million children are living in conflict zones around the world and more people than ever are being forced to flee their homes. Meanwhile, the number of natural disasters has doubled in the last 20 years.
No matter what the emergency, children always suffer the most.
The needs are huge, but so is our determination to reach every child caught up in crisis. Since we launched our Emergency Fund over ten years ago, we’ve been able to respond wherever the need is greatest, whether a crisis is making the headlines or has been largely forgotten by the world.
With your support, we can be ready to send life-saving food, shelter and medicines straight to where they are most urgently needed.
