Challenge

A major tornado ripped through the Moore, Oklahoma area on May 20, 2013 leaving devastation and despair in its path. After a disaster like this, children are among the most vulnerable as adults around them struggle to come to terms with the loss of homes, possessions and livelihoods. It is our job to make sure the needs of those children are not overlooked - and we need your help to make that happen.

Solution

As a national leader in child-focused disaster response and recovery programs, Save the Children is prepared to quickly deploy our Child Friendly Space kits in shelters, creating safe play areas where kids can be kids again. We are also ready to deploy infant and toddler hygiene materials to support young children's well-being while they are displaced from their homes.

Long-Term Impact

Save the Children has led and supported child-focused community resilience building programs in Oklahoma over the last five years. We will seek, not only to support the immediate needs of children in the tornado-affected communities, but also to partner with communities to strengthen their ability to protect children and help them recover when a disaster strikes.
