Help Save Children in Thailand

In times of crisis, children are the most vulnerable. Save the Children has been operating in Thailand since 1984, supporting vulnerable children and their families in disaster risk reduction and humanitarian response – as well as education, child protection, health and nutrition. After the deadly floods of 2017, generous donors like you supported the distribution of food packages to some of the most affected and hard-to-reach families.

Our Work for Children in Thailand

Save the Children has been working in Thailand since 1984. Over the past 30 years, we have worked to deliver lasting changes for children in Thailand. We have accomplished positive child development and child protection rights. However, challenges remain on the protection of child migrants, and the establishment of effective child protection mechanism and implementation to ensure that all children enjoy full rights to survival, development, protection, and participation.

Save the Children supports the development of policies that help fulfill children’s rights, particularly for migrant, refugee and ethnic minority children. Save the Children is also one of the leading responders in humanitarian crises, supporting children and their families who are caught up in disasters and conflict, working towards lasting peace and resilience in disaster-prone areas.

  • Protected 743 children from harm
  • Supported 189,856 children in times of crisis
  • Provided 1,302 children with a healthy start in life
