Challenge

Save the Children is deploying its emergency response team and pre-positioning essential supplies for children and families including diapers, baby wipes, cribs, toys and books, as well as communicating with national and state partners to assess children's immediate needs in response to Hurricane Florence. We know from decades of experience that children are the most affected in the wake of emergencies and disasters, and often their needs fall through the cracks.

Solution

Save the Children's Child Friendly Spaces are safe, designated areas where children can play, socialize and begin to recover after a disaster. They are run by trained staff members and give parents a supportive place to leave their children while attending to their family's immediate and longer-term needs.

Long-Term Impact

Children are always among the most vulnerable when crisis strikes. Offering them a safe place during times of disruption and uncertainty allows them to have much-needed fun again, while building their resiliency.
