Emergencies

Save the Children provides emergency help for a family affected by Typhoon Yolanda

In any crisis, children are affected the most.

mom-and-babiesFor more than 30 years, Save the Children has been helping children recover from emergencies in the Philippines.

Even after the cameras and world press have left, we stay behind to provide long-term support such as education and livelihoods, and build up community resilience to reduce the impact of future disasters.

With over 95 years of experience, Save the Children has the expertise in providing immediate relief.

We ensure that the most vulnerable people have access to shelter, clean water, food, and healthcare. We ensure that children are protected at all times.

Save the Children tackles both the causes and the effects that humanitarian emergencies have on children and their families.

In the aftermath of a disaster, we help people recover – supporting them as they rebuild their lives and ensuring they are better prepared for future disasters.  



Disaster preparedness

We carry out Disaster Risk Reduction programs across different parts of the country.

We also train children and teachers about disaster preparedness.


We need your support

Whatever emergency it may be, Save the Children strives to always meet children’s needs by:

  • Setting up Child-Friendly Spaces so children will have a safe place to rest and play. 
  • Providing skills training and livelihood opportunities for parents.
  • Helping rebuild schools.
  • Putting up Temporary Learning Spaces so children's education won’t be disrupted.
  • Providing Back-to-School Kits, Hygiene Kits, and Teaching Materials.
  • Training schools, local governments, families, and communities on disaster preparedness and resilience.
  • Doing on-the-ground relief and immediate response work.



Disasters can strike any time, hence we need to be prepared 24/7.

Save the Children works on protecting children before, during, and after disasters.  

With your support, we look forward to reaching more children. We cannot let children wait; they need us now more than ever. Donate today, Save lives!
