Responding to emergencies
No one knows when or where the next crisis will hit. But we do know that children are disproportionally affected in times of crisis — and often suffer the most. That's why Save the Children is dedicated to providing child-focused emergency readiness, relief and recovery in New Zealand and around the world.
Save the Children responded to seven large global emergencies in 2014, reaching 10.8 million people with immediate emergency supplies, preparation and disaster risk reduction support.
We responded to 103 crises in 2014 – from the Ebola epidemic in West Africa to relentless violence in Syria and the Middle East.
