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.

In 2020 alone, CEF supported 68 different emergencies in 50 countries. Employee donations to the CEF have supported children living in Wuhan during the first COVID-19 outbreak, to those affected by flooding in East Africa, to the Beirut explosion last August.

What is the Children’s Emergency Fund?

Save the Children’s Emergency Fund helps provide vital support for children in emergencies. Your donations help Save the Children respond wherever the need is greatest, deploying teams on the ground within hours of a disaster striking and helping reach children immediately with the essentials they need to survive. Between April and June this year, the fund was used to support 13 new emergencies in 18 countries across the world. 

Your donations could provide essential shelter and hygiene kits to children like Jenny, 15, (pictured) whose home was destroyed when a powerful cyclone made landfall in Vanuatu earlier this year. It could also support children in countries like Venezuela, where the Emergency Fund has been used to support emergency health, education, nutrition and wellbeing programmes there, reaching 400,000 children.

They are currently working in 114 countries, helping children who have been affected by COVID-19, while getting ready to respond in case things get worse.

GSK is also providing additional support for our partnership programmes as now, more than ever, our partnership is needed to make sure children have the chance to be safe, learn and grow up healthy and realise their full potential. Through our partnership COVID-19 Response Fund, we will ensure our current partnership programmes are fully equipped to tackle coronavirus and can support the communities we work with by continuing to provide potentially life-saving services.
