Save the Children

Making immediate and lasting change in the lives of children.

Save the Children

Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization for children. Its vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. Its mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
Save the Children has helped 2.5 million people affected by the hunger crisis in East Africa, with a primary focus on children. Many of the children walked for days or weeks across Somalia and into Kenya or Ethiopia. When they arrived at the refugee camps, we fed them and helped find foster families for those who had been separated from their families. In Somalia, the country hardest hit by the drought, Save the Children tripled the size of its emergency response, increasing its long-standing programs and expanding to new areas to reach the worst affected population.

The funds raised by the We Can Be Heroes campaign will help Save the Children increase the number of children we reach with food, clean water and healthcare.
