Save the Children has been working in Asia for more than 60 years. We’ve responded effectively to massive natural disasters like tsunamis, earthquake and cyclones. We provide life-saving healthcare to the children coming from the most vulnerable communities, with special focus on Newborn Child Survival.
Countries we work in: Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand, Vanuatu, Vietnam
In Africa, Save the Children has been a frontrunner among NGOs to fight rampant malnutrition and hunger. We have worked extensively for children affected by conflicts and natural disasters. During the Ebola crisis, Save the Children deployed hundreds of its relief workers (including trained health workers) in countries like Liberia distributing protective kits and equipment, and reaching tens of thousands of people in communities with information on how to limit the risks to themselves and their families.
Countries we work in: Burkina Faso, Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Guinea, Malawi, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe
Our work in Latin America benefits some of the world’s poorest children. Save the Children supports these children and their families in the areas of health (including HIV/AIDS prevention), nutrition and education. When a devastating earthquake shattered the island of Haiti, we were instrumental in providing relief to more than 50,000 children.
Countries we work in: Bolivia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua
GREATER MIDDLE EAST AND EUROASIA
It’s been several decades since we have been improving the lives of children in this region, large part of which is conflict-ridden. From responding to crisis to providing life-saving healthcare services, we have been putting smiles on the faces of children hailing from this region. In Syria, a country which has been torn apart by a horrific armed strife, (which has shattered the lives of millions of children), we are working to protect an entire generation of children from getting “lost”.
Countries we work in: Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Egypt, Georgia, Iraq, Israel & Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Syria, Tajikistan, Yemen.
