Stand with Ukraine's children
Ukraine’s children, millions of them, are right now facing the horrors war can bring. They face being injured or killed, emotional distress and being forced out of their homes.
We need to make sure our Government puts children at the heart of its response to the unfolding crisis.
Raise your voice and call on UK ministers to make sure Ukraine's children aren't forgotten.
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.
