Children's Emergency Fund

When disaster strikes, children are the most vulnerable.
- Save the Children's Country Director in Yemen, Rama Hansraj

Right now, children are under increasing emotional and psychological pressure as they bear the brunt of the world's worsening crisis. For years, Save the Children has responded to the unique needs of children impacted by conflict and displacement. Your donation to the Children's Emergency Fund helps support this life-saving work.

Save the Children has been providing essential services and support to Palestinian children impacted by the ongoing conflict since 1953 and have had a permanent presence in the occupied Palestinian territory since 1973. Approximately 2.45 million people need humanitarian assistance, 1.2 million of whom are children. Children have no part in starting wars, but are victims of their violence.

Save the Children's team in the occupied Palestinian territory has been working around the clock, prepositioning vital supplies to support people in need, and working to find ways to get assistance into Gaza. In Egypt, Save the Children is partnering with the Egyptian Red Crescent to send supplies to the Gaza strip as soon as a safe passage for aid across the border is established.

Why we fundraise


Dancing to Heal the World

Ongoing conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region has displaced more than 1.7 million people. Beile and her children: Senai, Abiah and Danait decided they needed to help. The children performed their own dancing and singing routines to collect donations and raised $650. "The sweetest thing they did," smiles Beile, "is that they had piggy banks with some coins, and they emptied them into the fundraising jar before they started asking for donations from others."


Honey Helpers: Teen and Bees

Rico is a rising high school senior and an experienced beekeeper who put his honeybees to work. Inspired by Save the Children's work in Ukraine, Europe's largest honey producing country, Rico raised more than $5,000 by giving each donor a jar of his summer honey harvest. 100% of the donations went directly to Save the Children's Emergency Relief Fund.

"If even the humble honeybee can help Save the Children, then surely each of us can too," says Rico.


4 Wheels, 4 Paws, 4 Good

COVID-19 had many repercussions for U.S. families, including, for some, their first experience with hunger. Mark Roberts decided to take action. Mark went on an 8-week journey across Massachusetts in his electric wheelchair with his dog and wife. They rolled to raise awareness and more than $100,000! "I have to say that I had so much fun, learned so much about so many people from across the political and economic spectrum. My Roll/Stroll restored a bit of my faith in humanity," says Mark.


Tessa Bakes for Ukraine's Kids

Tessa, from Connecticut, raised $2,000 for Save the Children's Ukraine Relief effort and is proud to help the children there as they try to stay safe during the war. Tessa says, "Helping others is a gift, not only to them, but to yourself, knowing that you are doing good for the world." Tessa wanted to send a message that people should be grateful for what they have and do what they can to help others. Tessa used her passion for baking to support children in Ukraine by baking scratch-made apple tortes.


Middle Schoolers Hike4ACause

Students at Magellan Middle School started "Hike4ACause" to raise money to help Afghan refugee children. Students were asked to get a sponsor to pay them for each mile hiked. 70 students hiked 538 miles raising $6,387.96!

"We are very grateful for the opportunity our community had to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of young refugees," said Nicolas Puga.
