The tiny feet of a barefoot child resting on a colorful play mat in a child-friendly space are visible under a red blanket. The child’s feet are covered in dirt. Some children and families crossing the U.S. border have walked for several days and have not bathed, are hungry, sick and exhausted. Save the Children is running child-friendly spaces and children’s play areas at transit shelters in New Mexico for children once they leave detention facilities.

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.

Save the Children has provided a library-in-a-box for their village in Pakistan.
