Chevron Corporation joined forces with Save the Children to help restore childcare centers in hard-hit areas of Mississippi following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The company’s $2 million contribution to Save the Children supported the construction of two new child care centers in Mississippi's Harrison and Hancock Counties.

Support for Kids around the World
Johnson & Johnson, as the official health care sponsor of the 2014 FIFA® World Cup, selected Save the Children as the philanthropic beneficiary of both external and internal activities around this globally recognized event. Johnson & Johnson and Save the Children have partnered on other innovative cause marketing campaigns to engage consumers with initiatives such as a matching gifts program for the Save The Children Gifts of Joy catalog and the Donate-a-Photo app, allowing consumers to donate a personal photo and trigger a donation to Save The Children from the company.
Johnson & Johnson businesses around the world engage with local members of the Save the Children movement, working to address the most pressing issues affecting children on a local level. Most recently, Johnson & Johnson companies supported our relief efforts in the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan in 2013 and the US Tornadoes in 2014.
Together, the Johnson & Johnson family of companies and Save the Children are grounded in a mutual mission of helping children most in need around the world. And, together, we are making a difference.

These two countries alone are home to 40 percent of the world's malnourished children. With support from the PepsiCo Foundation, Save the Children — alongside its local and national partners — is working to decrease child mortality and malnutrition in both locations.
The combined global resources of the PepsiCo Foundation and Save the Children are making a profound difference in the lives of 600,000 children under the age 5, as well as mothers and pregnant or lactating women. With our assistance, nearly 2,000 frontline health workers in India and Bangladesh are providing thousands of these countries' poorest families with important information about health, nutrition, clean water, sanitation and simple hygiene practices. The PepsiCo Foundation's support is also helping to develop an evidence base on the positive impact of community case management addressing children's severe acute malnutrition in southern Bangladesh, an initiative in partnership with Tufts University. We plan to use the findings to urge the government of Bangladesh to include this innovative strategy for treating malnourished children in its national guidelines.
