Children’s Emergency Fund

After an emergency, every minute of every day puts children at more risk of violence, sexual exploitation and child labour – and girls are always the worst affected.

Your support for the Children’s Emergency Fund means we can react fast when an emergency happens, reaching children and their families when their lives are at risk from natural disasters, conflict or hunger.

From providing essential aid, including shelter and hygiene kits, to setting up child protection services and helping communities rebuild in the long-term, your gift means we can support children in the hours, months and weeks after an emergency happens.

WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

In recent years, we’ve been responding to more and more emergencies around the world. Sadly, we know there will be even more to come.

Every emergency brings with it unique demands and challenges, and we believe the youngest and most vulnerable people affected shouldn’t have to wait for help to arrive.

That’s why we’ve set up the Children’s Emergency Fund, so that – with your vital support – we’ll have the funds available to act as quickly as possible when the next emergency happens, saving children’s lives.

SAVING LIVES AFTER AN EMERGENCY

With your support, we can:

  • Respond immediately when an emergency happens, distributing essential supplies such as hygiene kits, blankets and shelter.
  • Provide longer-term support for communities in need, including setting up child protection services and schools, training teachers and supporting children who have lost their families.
  • Help communities rebuild after a disaster, building new schools and providing training to enable people to rebuild their homes and protect against future devastation.
Alapi, five, in South Sudan
Five-year-old Alapi is now back in education in South Sudan.

Alapi's story

I have learnt new things and made new friends. I love my teachers.

In South Sudan, Alapi’s family had to leave their community after it was attacked by militants. Alapi had been going to pre-school, until the building was destroyed in the fighting. 

After they moved, Alapi's mum couldn't afford to send him to nursery school. But now he attends one of our Early Childhood Development centres, where he has the chance to learn, play with his friends, and enjoy being a child again.

Shrijana has completed training as a mason in Nepal
In Nepal, Shrijana is building a home for Krishna and her husband, after theirs was destroyed in the earthquake.

Shrijana’s story

These new skills will help me to rebuild my own home and other houses in my community.

In Nepal, 21-year-old Shrijana was the youngest female mason in her village to join our training programme.

Her family's home was seriously damaged in the earthquake that struck the country in 2015, and they lost most of their food, clothing and household items. Now, thanks to her training, Shrijana is not just earning money to support her family, she's also working with other masons in the community to rebuild some of the homes that were destroyed in the earthquake.
