Thursday 22 December 2011

2011 has been the busiest year for Save the Children’s Humanitarian Emergencies team in our 90-year history: 45 emergency responses, in 38 different countries. We’re really very tired.

But the first few days of an emergency are critical. It’s simple. It’s life and death. The faster we respond, the more lives we save.
