Tell Rishi Sunak to protect children
Time is running out. It is a matter of days until safe drinking water and electricity run out completely – with terrible implications for hospitals already on the point of collapse.
We’re demanding an urgent and immediate ceasefire. Without that, we cannot get aid to children in Gaza. We have lorries full of vital supplies poised on Gaza’s border with Egypt – supplies that could make the difference between life and death to children in Gaza. But right now, we can’t get there.
EXPAND FREE SCHOOL MEALS
800,000 children in England aren’t eligible for free school meals, despite living in poverty.
Free school meals are a lifeline for families on low incomes.
It is vital the UK government expands free school meals to help children living in poverty.
UK Government must do more to fight the climate crisis
For years, governments and parts of the private sector have put profit before the planet.
The price of this? Unpredictable and extreme weather. Floods. Droughts. Livelihoods destroyed.
And while children are not responsible for this mess we are in, they have the most to lose.
They deserve better than this.
Add your name if you agree: children must not be left with a broken planet.
Protecting children in Afghanistan
Over 26,000 people signed our petition, launched in partnership with Global Citizen and Christian Aid, calling for a global summit to respond to the full-blown humanitarian catastrophe underway in Afghanistan.
The situation in Afghanistan continues to be dire but we are pleased to report that the UK will co-host a summit to address the growing crisis.
Gwen Hines, Chief Executive of Save the Children UK, said: “The situation in Afghanistan continues to be horrific, with many children and their families succumbing to illness and starvation.
“It’s crucial that the pledging summit is held as soon as possible. The time is now for world leaders to find a way to unlock vital funds and unfreeze financial assets to prevent the crisis from spiralling any further.”
Safeguarding Afghan children's education
Learning is a lifeline and the UK Government must prioritise the future of Afghanistan's children.
With their families, children in the UK discussed the situation of Afghan children, and their education, and then created letters and drawings of solidarity.
We want children in Afghanistan to hear us loud and clear - ‘you are in our hearts and minds – we care about your future.’
Every child deserves the chance to thrive. But often, rules and systems get in the way. Children face barriers that aren't just bad luck, they're a design of a system.
That could mean children can’t go to school because they’re a girl. Or suffer from diseases because their government hasn't made healthcare available.
Together, we campaign for these children.
We make sure the rights and dignity of all children are protected and upheld by their government.
