Save the Children
Saves children’s lives. They helped 15.4 million children through their work in 2013 both nationally and abroad. This includes amazing work in the following areas:
When disaster strikes, there is no time to lose. Their teams respond quickly and do whatever it takes to save children’s lives. In 2013 they responded to 119 emergencies in 48 different countries – delivering life-saving food, water, healthcare, protection and education to 3.4 million children and their family members.
Education has the power to transform children’s futures. We’re helping millions of children go to school.
Being born into poverty reduces a child’s chances for a brighter future. Children still die because their parents cannot get the treatment they need, or afford enough food to keep them healthy. And in the UK, 1.6 million children are living in severe poverty. Being born into a poor family dramatically reduces a child’s chances of a brighter future. This must change. More than 8 million children died last year, most from preventable conditions and diseases. Almost all of these child deaths take place in developing countries, and within these countries children from the poorest backgrounds are least likely to survive. That’s wrong.
Their research has shown that even relatively poor countries like Bolivia and Ghana have reduced the numbers of children dying. They’ve done this by focusing resources on helping the poorest and most disadvantaged people.
Countries making slow or no progress on reducing the number of children dying tend to have greater disparities between the richest and poorest people living there. This shows that the approach a government takes – not its resources – is most important in reducing child mortality.
It’s the one thing parents cannot bear to imagine – the death of a child. But, in many countries, it’s not only imaginable, but likely.
