OUR HUMANITARIAN WORK
In 2013 Save the Children responded to over 120 humanitarian crises around the world.
In any crisis, children are always the most vulnerable. We make sure that children affected by floods, famines, earthquakes and armed conflict get life-saving medical aid, shelter, food and water – fast. We safeguard children and help reunite separated families. And we help children recover from crises by providing emotional support and safe places to learn and play.
Save the Children comprises Save the Children International and 30 member organisations working to deliver change for children in 120 countries.
OUR VISION, MISSION AND VALUES
A world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation.
To inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable results, and being accountable to supporters, partners and, most of all, children.
We are demanding of ourselves and our colleagues, set high goals and are committed to improving the quality of everything we do for children.
We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with partners to leverage our global strength in making a difference for children.
We are open to new ideas, embrace change, and take disciplined risks to develop sustainable solutions for and with children.
We aspire to live to the highest standards of personal honesty and behaviour; we never compromise our reputation and always act in the best interests of children.
