The destructive tsunami that was triggered by a 7.2m earthquake in Indonesia  has left children and families struggling to survive. 

We know what to do

Every child has the same potential, but not all have the opportunity to realise it. Our work focuses on the needs of all children, but especially the most marginalised, because we believe in a world where every child is healthy, has the opportunity to learn, and is safe from violence, abuse and exploitation.
