EMERGENCY ALERT: TYPHOON HAIYAN
Super Typhoon Haiyan is affecting millions of children in the Philippines, Laos and Vietnam. With your help, Save the Children will be there to respond to the unique physical and emotional needs of children impacted by Super Typhoon Haiyan. Together, we can make sure we reach the most vulnerable children with essential aid. For example, your gift of $80 could provide children's clothing and a basic shelter kit for a family who has lost all of their possessions. Our teams are on the ground, but we need your support. Please donate generously.

Helping to Provide Emergency Support
Every minute counts when emergencies jeopardize children's lives and well-being. Thanks to Disney, Save the Children has given hope to children in Haiti, Japan and East Africa who have endured unthinkable disasters. They're among the tens of thousands of girls and boys worldwide we feed, shelter, protect, and bring medical care to every year in emergencies large and small.
Preparing for Future Crises
Save the Children prepares children and families in disaster-prone places in the U.S. and abroad for emergencies before they strike. We pre-position relief supplies at regional hubs for rapid shipment to disaster areas, and make sure our global staff is trained to protect children who are at their most vulnerable. Once children's most urgent needs are being met, we work to open temporary classrooms, rebuild permanent schools and child care centers, restore water and sanitary systems and improve children's access to nutrition and health services. We also help the poorest families in the area regain incomes and resume food production.
Making a contribution to our Children's Emergency Fund allows Save the Children to rapidly respond to children's needs when time is precious and strengthens our child-focused emergency preparedness work before crises to ensure that communities are resilient in the face of adversity.
