Challenge

Every year, nearly 8 million children and newborns die from easily preventable or treatable causes. 175 million children are affected by natural disasters, with more being caught up in conflict and upheaval. 72 million children are missing out on school.

Solution

Save the Children supports programs that combat deadly diseases, like measles and tetanus. We run education programs which are the best antidote to poverty and despair in every nation. And we fight against the ravages of malnutrition.

Long-Term Impact

At Save the Children, we've learned that a small amount of money can make a big difference. Did you know $80 buys a month of healthy food for 15 kids in a US feeding program? $25 can provide an AIDS orphan in Africa with school supplies for a year?
