Children's Emergency Fund
Our Work in Japan
When the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami hit the north eastern coast of Japan on March 11, 2011, children were among the most vulnerable. Thousands had their homes devastated, countless lost family members and friends, and children of all ages saw their schools damaged or destroyed.
Save the Children has seen first-hand how children truly are the most vulnerable when a disaster hits – we’ve seen this as their homes have been washed away, their parents, teachers and siblings lost, and their schools have been destroyed.
Ways to Help
We never know where or when the next disaster will strike. Help us be prepared to respond to emergencies and disasters around the world with a gift to our Children's Emergency Fund.
