Children in Canada and around the world are facing growing risks as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across international borders. As a global leader in child-focused humanitarian response, we are working around the clock to keep children healthy, safe and protected, and ensure they continue learning.
In Canada, we’re working with our partners to understand the pandemic’s impact on Indigenous communities and their unique needs. Around the world, we are focusing on preparedness activities to reduce the spread of the virus and supporting children and families who may be separated due to quarantine.
Save the Children is responding to the growing threat of the Coronavirus and working around the clock to keep children and their families healthy in Canada and around the world.
