COVID-19, climate crisis, and conflict mean we're facing a global hunger crisis, which is an unacceptable catastrophe in a world where NO CHILD should ever go hungry.
Please give to our Child Emergency Fund to allow us to respond wherever the need is greatest to reach children quickly with the essentials they need to survive. With your donation today, you provide with cash, food vouchers, and medical treatment to help children and their families beat malnutrition.
“Most of the time we go to sleep hungry. It’s been five months since we’ve eaten meat, vegetables, and fruit” says Ferhana, a 10-year-old child living in Afghanistan.

The situation is urgent. Hunger leaves children vulnerable to infection, disease, and death - and right now nearly one quarter of the world suffers permanent damage.
Please give to our Child Emergency Fund today. Your donation will allow our response teams to react quickly to emergencies around the world:
· $25 can fill a family basket with nourishing essentials like rice, oil, beans and wheat
· $70 could pay for a 7kg bag of seed for a family in Somalia so they can grow food for a year
· $210 could pay for hospitalization in Yemen for a child with severe acute malnutrition
Poverty and rising prices brought on by COVID-19 mean many families can't afford food. These knock-on effects of the pandemic, plus conflict, and the climate crisis, together are creating a perfect storm threatening more droughts and food shortages.
Save the Children is working alongside communities to provide life-changing assistance to children. Our hunger and nutrition programmes help millions every year. But we can’t do it alone.
This is why we’re responding through the Child Emergency Fund – a central pot of flexible funding for emergencies. A gift to the Child Emergency Fund will help children facing hunger and at risk of famine – and other life-threatening crises that may strike – to stay safe, healthy and to keep learning.
