Save the children
 
We save lives by responding to humanitarian emergencies caused by natural disasters, disease outbreaks, armed conflict, and migration. Save the Children responded to 129 emergencies in 60 countries in 2016. ˧

While some were man-made, many were caused by nature, some unexpected, others we knew were coming. Ensuring children caught up in a natural emergency have access to food and a place to live is essential. But beyond that, they need protection. During times of drought, or following floods or an earthquake, children are most vulnerable. With or without family, they are at risk of abuse and exploitation. They often stop going to school and resulting poverty leads to a rise in child marriage. When responding to natural emergencies, we ensure children survive, and that their right to learn, play and enjoy a childhood is protected. ˧
