Help support Save the Children's Emergency Fund (CEF)

Save the Children's Emergency Fund (CEF) Is a pot of flexible funding used by Save's humanitarian teams to respond and support children most in need when disaster strikes.

The Emergency Fund ensures Save the Children can be ready and respond within hours of an emergency,  as well as helping communities recover faster after the event.

So far in 2022, the Emergency Fund has reached over 27.3million children and families around the world. Save the Children were able to respond to emergencies in 29 countries, including in response to the war in Ukraine, devastating flooding in Pakistan, and the extensive hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa.

GSK and GSK employees generously contributed over £1million to the Save the Children Emergency Fund in 2022, which is just incredible!
