Responding to the Coronavirus Outbreak
As the global leader in child-focused humanitarian response, Save the Children mobilized immediately to provide support, including medical supplies and preparedness training to the most vulnerable region impacted by coronavirus. Now, as the global death increases due to coronavirus, children around the world are facing growing risks.
Save the Children is working around the clock to keep children healthy, safe and protected. With each day, the risks to the psychological impact this pandemic can have on children grow. Children living in quarantine or possibly being separated from their families are especially vulnerable. While school closings can also cause disruption to children’s education. In the United States alone, 30 million children who rely on school for both learning and meals are at great risk.
Our response includes training health teams worldwide how to protect themselves and prevent further spread of the disease. We are also supplying the personal protective equipment and other supplies frontline health staff desperately need. In addition, we are protecting children and families that may be separated due to quarantine.
Your donation today to Save the Children and our partner No Kid Hungry will help make sure schools and community programs have the support they need to keep feeding vulnerable children during the pandemic. You’re also supporting our important work to meet the health, education and nutrition needs of kids in other countries impacted by coronavirus.

Donate and Help #SAVEWITHSTORIES
30 million children in the United States go to school not only for learning but also for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. Kids are now stuck at home without access to school lunches, books and, in rural America, computers, broadband, or even print outs from schools that can’t afford paper and ink. They need our help.
That’s why Trustee Jennifer Garner and fellow actor Amy Adams came up with #SAVEWITHSTORIES. In partnership with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry, they’ll be offering stories on Instagram and Facebook to provide a little fun, a little education, and a little distraction for kids and parents
