Save the Children invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. By transforming children's lives now, we change the course of their future and ours.

Yemeni children are living in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. I see their suffering every day while working on the ground in Yemen. The only way to end this suffering is to end the conflict. It is therefore a shame if national parliaments keep giving the green light to continued sales of military equipment to the Saudi-led coalition.
South Sudan's children building a future without conflict.
It is now more than five years since the start of a brutal conflict in South Sudan, which has devastated the lives of millions of children.Some have been killed, maimed, subjected to sexual violence and recruited into armed groups. Over 70% of children are out of school and only 16% of girls over the age of 15 can read or write.
Global Hand washing day and World Toilet day raise awareness of the facts and the essential interventions to prevent death and disease from water borne disease. These days aren’t glamorous, but they are fun and effective ways to prevent diarrhoea.
THE STATS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
Last summer and early autumn, a series of major quakes hit the Indonesian islands of Lombok and Sulawesi. One also triggered a devastating 20-foot tsunami. More than 2,500 people were killed and half a million people displaced.
Tens of thousands of children became homeless. Many were orphaned or separated from their families amid the destruction and confusion. They were left with nothing, stuck in makeshift camps which left them at an increased risk of disease and even trafficking.
