Who you're helping

Yeremy

Jenny, 33, and her two children in their home, holding food purchased with food vouchers provided by Save the Children.

Yeremy, seven, and his family are battling with inflation and natural disasters.

They live in Nicaragua’s Nueva Segovia Department, where the pandemic and back to back Hurricanes devastated her family's crops and income.

The rising cost of basic goods and services made it difficult for Yeremy's mum Jenny to provide enough food for her family, which caused her children to become underweight.

We supported the family with vouchers to purchase food and essential items.

Yeremy was thrilled to see all the food his mother brought home and noted how important it will be for his baby sister's health.

“I wanted to come quickly to the house to see everything my mom brought home. I came running home to eat” - Yeremy. 

Banned but not broken

Claudia Vessey / Save the Children

For a long time, sisters Parvana* and Hasina* were banned from going to school. Why? Because they're girls. 

Their parents feared the girls would be harrassed or abducted on the two mile walk to school in Kabul, Afghanistan. 

However, the 14 year olds were determined to get an education. They now attend the Save the Children community school, which is closer to home and run by female teachers.

The duo no longer feel hopeless watching their brothers get ready for school. Because six days a week they’re getting ready for the classroom too!

 "I enjoy school, but I also enjoy it because we have fun with other girls." - Parvana
