As a global organisation, a big part of what Save the Children does is focused on emergency and humanitarian support. Our staff have humanitarian and emergency response expertise and we know what to do to save children, and to help families rebuild their lives.
When large-scale humanitarian and natural disasters strike around the world we race against the clock to save, support and protect children.
Save the Children New Zealand supports colleagues on the ground as they deliver immediate relief and long-term assistance to children and families.
Our fundraising appeals make a huge difference to children’s lives and we work hard to make sure that every donation counts.
