Haiti Appeal

Homes have been destroyed, water and food are in short supply, and there is an increased risk of cholera and other water borne diseases.


When children are at their most vulnerable, when disaster strikes, in times of crisis, in places where poverty puts children at risk – Save the Children is there.

Drawing on close to a century of experience, we work to relieve the suffering of children affected by war and natural disaster. We create lasting change by making sure children are healthy, protected and have the opportunity to learn.

We know what to do

Every child has the same potential, but not all have the opportunity to realise it. Our work focuses on the needs of all children, but especially the most marginalised, because we believe in a world where every child is healthy, has the opportunity to learn, and is safe from violence, abuse and exploitation.
