Winter climates like snow and wind are inconvenient for us, but they are threateningly harsh for a child caught in the refugee crisis. This winter, children in Lebanon like 3-year-old Salwa* are struggling to keep warm as the elements wreak havoc on refugee camps. In response to the winter storms hitting the Bekaa Valley, we visited refugees to distribute weatherproofing kits, plastic sheets and wooden planks to help support tents in these unpredictable conditions.

The people in this floating Cambodian village do not have land to live on so they live on the water. In spite of this, Neng, Lay and Sun have a grand time riding their wash basins to school.

Wishing you a fun and adventure-filled weekend!

On January 12, 2010, a massive 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck #Haiti, affecting an estimated 3 million people and destroying 5,000 schools. Our emergency response reached over 1 million children and adults through relief and recovery programs, including re-opening schools and making them better able to withstand disasters. These children in Port-au-Prince were so excited to return to their lessons after we helped rebuild their school and train its teachers. #tbt

Human trafficking is a crime that exploits women, children and men in every country, according to the UN. For #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay, we're raising awareness for the millions of victims of trafficking around the world.

New mother Akuol holds her 3-day-old baby girl in the maternity ward of a hospital we run in South Sudan. Conflict that has affected the country for over 3 years finally forced Akuol from her home while she was pregnant. Our hospital provides cost-free healthcare including antenatal, delivery, and post-natal services to mothers like Akuol so babies like hers have the best chance to survive and thrive.

Our #Partner4Children supporters helped turn Rani's future around by transforming her classroom and helping her teacher adopt interactive methods for classroom learning. Before entering Save the Children’s Literacy Boost program, Rani was failing school and losing interest in learning. Now, she’s at the top of her class!

Join us today and become a #Partner4Children to make a difference for children like Rani: http://ow.ly/r37630805z3

3-year-old Khaled* from Syria poses in front of the camera with his new rainproof jacket we provided at a refugee camp in Greece. Dozens of refugees are at risk of freezing to death in Europe following recent heavy snows and bitterly cold temperatures in Greece in the Balkans. We're distributing children’s winter boots, jackets, hats, scarves, rain ponchos and baby snowsuits. Here's how you can help us reach more children like Khaled: http://ow.ly/Q7zL307YX3T
