Save the Children have been fighting and working tirelessly to make sure that children survive, get protection when they are in danger, and have the chance to learn for over 100 years. Poverty, conflict, and hunger are some of the terrifying threats which are sadly faced by millions of children every day. Standing side by side with children in the toughest places to be alive, this incredible charity helps over 45 million children across the world get the medicine, good food and education they need each year.
Every year, 5 million children under the age of 5 die due to starvation, war, pneumonia, and other preventable causes. The number of children going hungry in the world is unacceptable, with 45% of child deaths being linked to malnutrition and many diseases can be treated with basic medicine, yet every year, 3 million babies die within their first month from curable diseases. Because of the magnificent work that Save the Children do, more children are surviving their early years than ever before. Millions of children never see inside a classroom, or they drop out due to overcrowded classes, conflict, or simply because they are a girl. Save the Children believe that education is a birth right and they work with children to create a world where they don’t just survive but thrive.
