What We Do

What We Do For Children

Bdai, Vietnamese mother of two, bends into a stream to fill a water bottle for her children. She lives in a rural highland community suffering the effects of drought. Her crops failed, food is scarce and expensive, and she cannot afford basics like medicine for her children. Save the Children has helped families like hers, by providing rice to feed the family for a month, and trucking in water to the hardest-hit communities.

Nearly 5.6 million children die each year due to preventable and treatable causes. Malnutrition contributes to the deaths of children and a lifetime of poor health. We are committed to providing health and nutrition programs that save children's lives and ensure they grow up healthy. LEARN MORE

Education is the road that children follow to reach their full potential in life, yet many children in need around the world do not get a quality education where they can learn and develop. Save the Children supports education programs for children in the classroom and at home. LEARN MORE

Gillian, two, sits on a log amongst the debris where her village once stood. It was destroyed by typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines in 2013. Many coastal villages were devastated by the storm, and debris blocking roads made access impossible. Save the Children was on the ground expanding operations to deliver life-saving aid and medical care across the Leyte province. Photo credit: Jonathan Hyams/Save the Children, November 2013.
