Child protection in emergency

Child protection in emergency
Conflict and frequent disasters continue to scar a child's live. Each year, natural and manmade disasters affect an estimated 231 million people worldwide. Children are the most vulnerable to abuse, neglect, exploitation and violence following an emergency.  Our child protection in emergency response revolves around preventing family separation, exploitation, gender based violence,  physical harm and providing psychosocial care and support to the affected children. Save the Children has a dedicated team as part of Child protection in Emergency (CPiE) and they respond to all major emergencies in India. 

In 2018, Save the Children provided life-saving humanitarian relief to 87,954 children.
