World Food Day

World Trafficking Day

World Food Day is October 16, and children of the world are without food. The reasons “why” vary from droughts that decimate crops and kill livestock, to conflict and violence that forces people to leave their countries. From natural disasters that destroy homes and businesses, to rural communities living in poverty. The causes are many, the consequences are the same – children around the world and here in the U.S. are hungry.


Hunger can become deadly. When malnutrition weakens a child, common illnesses become life-threatening. See how one child survived thanks to the caring professionals at a hospital supported by Save the Children’s donors. See your generosity in action.
