This is the biggest global health crisis of our lifetime.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) is already having devastating consequences for children. As the coronavirus stretches health systems to their limits in every country, children are already missing out on treatment that protects them from killer diseases. The pandemic will leave many children without caregivers, out of school and in danger. And as poverty deepens, the children and families least able to cope will be hit first and hardest.
While we’re doing all we can to protect those closest to us, vulnerable children and their families cannot be forgotten as the world battles to contain the outbreak of coronavirus.
Save the Children has launched a $100 million appeal - the biggest appeal in our 100-year history – to protect children in the world’s most deprived areas from the effects of coronavirus.
It's only by coming together that we will help families get through this, and we must act now. We need your urgent support. Please give to our coronavirus emergency appeal.
