Support Save the Children’s Christmas Hunger Appeal today

 

What’s happening?

When children are undernourished, they have no energy to play. Without enough nutritious food, a child has less hope of improving their life; they get caught in a cycle of poverty – trapped by hunger.

You can join with Save the Children to help support children, through their Christmas Hunger Appeal. Your support can help prevent hunger from happening in the first place, by:

  • providing families with enough highly nutritious food and healthcare to treat an undernourished child and giving them the strength to build long-term health.
  • educating families about preparing healthy food and practicing proper breastfeeding techniques via home visits and case management for newborns and vulnerable children.
  • training local staff in poor communities to treat, refer and protect families from the threat of disease and malnutrition.
  • promoting good practice and increasing quality standards around water, sanitation and hygiene.

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. They work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services. With more than 90 years working with children, they are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through their long-term development programs.

The most basic of items can make a huge difference in children’s lives and set them up for the future.

What’s happening?

UNESCO estimates that around the world, 57 million primary-school aged children are not in school. It could be because they live in an area of conflict, there aren’t enough teachers, they can’t afford books or uniforms, or they have to work to support their family.

Education is a path out of poverty for many children and their families. Save the Children works to support access to quality education for all children – girls and boys – no matter where they live.

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. They work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services. With more than 90 years working with children, they are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through their long-term development programs.

In emergency situations where the education system is unable to function as normal, Save the Children establishes temporary learning centres and provides safe environments for children to learn and play.

Children fleeing the Rohingya crisis urgently need your help. Join with Save the Children to help

 

What’s happening?

The Rohingya Crisis is the fastest-growing humanitarian emergency in the world today. A major escalation of violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has forced more than 600,000 Rohingya people to flee to Bangladesh – adding to 200,000 who had fled earlier conflict. More than half the refugees – upwards of 350,000 – are children. The United Nations calls it “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.

Save the Children’s efforts

Save the Children is one of Australia’s largest aid and development agencies dedicated to helping children. They work hard to protect children from harm and help them access quality education and health services. With more than 90 years working with children, they are at the forefront of saving children’s lives when disasters strike and create lasting change for children and their families through their long-term development programs.

Save the Children is on the ground providing food, water and shelter, safe spaces for children, and hygiene kits to stop disease spreading among already vulnerable people. They’re also helping to reunite unaccompanied children with their families.
