Children's lives and futures are on the line. The economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic could push as many as 86 million more children into poverty by the end of 2020 - with the poorest potentially facing levels of deprivation not seen in decades.
Save the Children is seizing this critical moment to avert a looming catastrophe for those least able to cope in a world upended by COVID-19. With your support, we are acting quickly to prevent, mitigate and respond to the devastating impact of the pandemic. Our global experts are working nonstop to reach girls and boys at risk of losing their caregivers to the virus; adolescent girls who may be forced into early marriage; children being lured into labor markets to make ends meet, and the millions of students now out of school and at real risk of never returning.
Save the Children colleagues from around the world led a series of discussions about the implications of COVID-19 for their communities and how, together, we aim to make sure this generation of children can achieve their potential.
