Refugee families are enduring winter temperatures in temporary shelters on Lesvos. Pregnant women and tiny babies are amongst the most vulnerable. They have survived long and dangerous journeys, but they are still struggling to keep warm this winter.
At night, the temperature on Lesvos falls into single digits. Refugees are huddling in temporary shelters while they wait to register.

Malawi is the poorest country in the world. An unfair tax agreement, signed with the UK over half a century ago, makes it possible for British companies working there to get away with paying hardly any tax in the country.
When big companies don’t pay their fair share, essential public services like healthcare and education are starved of funding – and women and girls pay the price.
Malawi is the poorest country in the world. And thanks to an outdated, unfair tax agreement, UK companies who work there are able to pay hardly any tax in the country, starving Malawi's schools and hospitals of critical funds. It’s time for that to change.

Great news! Liberia is now Ebola-free, and the outbreak that started almost two years ago has been officially declared over.
As the Ebola outbreak is officially declared, we reflect on the devastating effects the disease has had across West Africa and call on the international community to invest in recovery and help to rebuild shattered lives.

Thanks to your support, we’ve helped over five million people in 2015. You were with us in Nepal after the devastating earthquakes, in Greece with refugees fleeing war and in Kenya where many girls face the horror of female genital mutilation. Watch this video to see how you’ve helped the world’s poorest women and girls this year.
Thanks to our wonderful supporters, we helped more than five million people in 2015.
