13-year-old Fred (right) and 14-year-old Clinton are students at a Save the Children-supported primary school in Malawi. Fred is blind and has learned to read and write Braille at school, but he still needs assistance with certain things. Clinton explains that as his friend, he walks Fred to the facilities, brings him his lunch, and reads aloud to him from the black board and books that aren't translated into Braille.

Around the world, 150 million children have a disability. We're working to reach #EveryLastChild so kids like Fred receive equal treatment and have access to a basic quality education.

8-year-old Lana* was very lonely when her family fled Syria and arrived at a refugee camp in Greece. She only spoke with her family, stayed close to their tent, and didn’t play with other children. When she first arrived at our Child-Friendly Space, our staff worked closely with her to make sure she felt comfortable and included in activities. Today, Lana plays with other children and takes part in the same activities. Her parents trust our child protection experts, knowing they take good care of Lana. Learn what else we’re doing to help refugee children like Lana: http://ow.ly/s5yE303tuLL

Food is hard to come by when you’re a refugee child stranded in Idomeni, Greece. Thanks to the dedicated support of our #Partner4Children community, our Child Friendly Spaces help fill the stomachs, minds and hearts of kids caught in the crisis. Become a Partner for Children today to be there for children when they need it most: http://ow.ly/SzXh300azc5

Vietnam is emerging from its worst drought in 90 years as a result of the strongest El Niño on record. It’s affected an estimated 2 million people, including Riu and her 1-year-old son Na Than. Families in the region are largely dependent on the farming of rice, cassava and corn, meaning that as well as the risk to their health, their livelihoods have been destroyed. When Riu’s crops failed, she had to take out a loan worth nearly half her annual salary and pays a monthly interest just to get by. We provided her family with a water filter so they could purify water from the river and make it safe to drink. We’ve also trucked in emergency water and filters to the worst-affected areas to ensure safe drinking water at homes and in schools.

13-year-old Bayan* stands at the entrance of her family’s tent in a camp for displaced families in northern Syria. Violence forced the family to leave their hometown 3 years ago, and after moving several times, Bayan is determined to one day return to the home she loved. “The camp can never be a home for anyone,” Bayan tells us. “Even if my house was destroyed to the ground, I will go back and build it with my own hands... I will never leave my home again, not under any conditions.”

Bayan has found comfort attending a school that we support within the camp, but so many more children need our help. Donate now to help Syrian children like Bayan: http://ow.ly/WRIh303mdJ5

“I’m fortunate enough to be doing the job that I’ve always wanted to do, although my perceptions on the role of a humanitarian have evolved quite a bit over time," says Katie Morris of our Emergency Health and Nutrition Team, pictured here (far right) with colleagues in Rwanda. "I’m grateful for the opportunity and privilege to work with groups of people that often don’t get the respect they deserve. Working alongside other humanitarians committed to serving makes me thankful every day to have the job I always wanted.” #WHD2016 #ShareHumanity

"Sometimes when you're laughing and playing with the children, you forget about the traumatic experiences they must have gone through," says Efthimia Tsigka, a Save the Children food distribution facilitator in Greece. "The work may be hard, but when you see the smile on their faces you hope that you, too, can make them forget what they've been through. I could do this job all my life. This job has made me a better person." #WHD2016 #ShareHumanity

The situation inside Syria is dire as areas certain areas continue to be held under siege. Aid supplies are dwindling, hospitals are overcrowded and roads are badly damaged by bomb craters. Children are among the most vulnerable, experiencing bombing, facing starvation, and dying from preventable diseases. Donate now to help innocent children caught in the midst of this ongoing conflict: http://ow.ly/WRIh303mdJ5
