No matter the emergency, children always suffer the most.

We’ve all seen the terrible news. The devastating earthquake in Haiti. And a terrifying surge in conflict in Afghanistan.  

The earthquake that hit Haiti on Saturday 14 August demolished thousands of homes. With survivors forced to sleep outside, children face deadly risks. 

In Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands of children were forced from their homes. Now more are going hungry, without shelter, food or medical care.

At the same time, a triple threat of COVID-19, climate change and conflict fuels a global hunger crisis threatening millions of children.  

Our Emergency Fund allows us to respond in hours to disasters around the world so we can reach children immediately. Your support can help children and families devastated by disaster to stay safe and healthy.

Help children rebuild their lives

How you can help

Young lives are in danger – from the Haiti earthquake, the conflict in Afghanistan and the global hunger crisis. We have to act quickly.

Donate now to our Emergency Fund to help us protect children affected by emergencies around the world. 

What your donation could do

In Haiti we’re preparing to distribute cash so families who have lost everything can buy food. We will run safe spaces for children to play and learn, and support them to get back to school.  

In Afghanistan we reached more than a million people last year. We must stand by children at this critical time. Your donation could help us support families in crisis who have lost everything to get essentials like shelter, food, safe water and medicine. 

Our Emergency Fund allows us to respond within hours of a disaster striking, so we can reach children immediately. Your support can help children and their families devastated by disaster to stay safe, healthy and to rebuild their lives.  

Protect children in crisis

A decade of emergency response

It's been over 10 years since we launched our Emergency Fund. Thanks to your support, we've reached millions of children in their darkest hour.
