Save the Children Canada

For over 100 years, we’ve advanced children’s rights in Canada and around the world. We do whatever it takes every day and in times of crisis — to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We strive to ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard— transforming their lives and the future we share. Because we believe every girl and boy has the right to survive and thrive.

Coronavirus: Responding To A Pandemic

Coronavirus: Responding To A Pandemic

As with all disease outbreaks, children and families who have limited access to healthcare or clean water are the most vulnerable.
We are preparing response plans for all 114 countries where we work, with special attention to scenarios of high transmission rates in low-resource countries.

WHAT WE DO FOR CHILDREN

Emergency

Emergency

When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children survive, and that their right to learn, play and enjoy a childhood is protected, no matter what is going on around them.

Education

Millions of children are being robbed of an education because of who they are or where they live. Education improves life-long health, income and prospects. We work to ensure every child receives a quality education and gains the skills and knowledge they need to thrive.

Too many children around the world live in danger. We are there for vulnerable children, keeping them safe from harm whether they are living on the streets, in refugee camps, or in institutions. We also work to change national and international policies on child protection.

Reconciliation

Reconciliation

We recognize that not all children’s rights are equally realized in Canada, and those most deprived of their rights are First Nations, Metis, and Inuit children. That’s why we are focusing our programs in Canada on reconciliation through a child-centred approach.
