Remarkable progress has been made over the past two decades in global health for children. Yet tragically, 5.9 million children under the age of 5 still die each year from mostly preventable causes, which equate to nearly 16,000 every day.
We are committed to providing robust health and nutrition programs around the world that save children's lives and ensure they grow up healthy.
Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children - every day and in times of crisis - transforming their lives and the future we share.
