More and more moms are moving to cities around the globe looking for a better future for their children. Our #SOWM report explores answers to some burning questions:

• Are the chances of survival of poor children more in the urban areas as compared to rural areas?
• What health inequities do urban areas in developing and industrialized nations have in common?
• Where are the best and worst places to be a mom among 179 countries?

Save the Children’s State of the World’s Mothers 2015 report: 'The Urban Disadvantage' puts forward the most exhaustive evaluation of health and survival disparities between the wealthiest and poorest children in major cities around the world, including New Delhi. Here’s the executive summary of the report for you: bit.ly/sowm2015summary

Save the Children’s 16th Annual State of World’s Mothers Report saw the light of the day yesterday when it was launched by Hon’ble Minority Affairs Minister Dr Najma Heptulla. This year’s report, titled “The Urban Disadvantage” lays bare the huge divide between the rich and the poor living in the major cities of the world, including New Delhi, with reference to access of healthcare services by mothers and children. The report also discusses the global child mortality trends in details.
Focusing on maternal and child healthcare in the urban areas of the world, the report also presents various other important findings. Also, like previous years, it goes on to rank the best and worst countries to be a mother. Read the executive summary here: bit.ly/sowm2015summary.

Young children from ‪#‎Nepal receive aid items provided by Save the Children teams. “They will change into a new pair of clothes today”, mother of these twins now living outside in tents in a relief camp said.

There is a lot more to be done for those thousands of children of Nepal who have lost almost all belongings due to #NepalQuake. And with your support, we can help Nepalese children make it through this disaster. Donate now at: bit.ly/istandwithnepal

Save the Children's Devendra Tak has shared some pictures of our relief material being mobilised in the Gorkha village (very near to the epicentre of the #NepalEarthquake). While the Gorkha village is moderately affected, towards the north there are at least 11 villages which have been totally destroyed, he reports.

Further north is an area near the border from where there is still no information about the losses, as these areas have become inaccessible due to the roads being damaged. Only access is from helicopters. Children and families are mostly staying out in the open and struggle for basic necessities like food and water.

Spare a thought for the children and families who are spending their 8th night sleeping out in the open in freezing temperatures. There are hundreds of families which have lost everything in this disastrous earthquake. It goes without saying that children are the worst-affected and need urgent support.

Owing to the contributions of our generous donors, our amazing on-ground teams in Nepal have been working relentlessly to provide emergency relief material like shelter kits (tarpaulins, etc.), baby kits, hygiene kits, etc. to the worst-affected children and their families. Help us keep going and reach out to even more children. Your support saves lives. Donate today at: bit.ly/istandwithnepal #NepalQuakeRelief

Poverty and a decade of instability in ‪#‎Nepal‬ have contributed to these disheartening facts. Post the devastating ‪#‎NepalQuake‬, things are only likely to go from bad to worse and children will be hit the hardest by all of this. Save the Children’s teams from across the world are rallying in Nepal and are working on war-footing to reach out to the survivors with life-saving relief material.

We are all set to step up our relief efforts in the days to come. But it all depends on your support. Nepalese children need help. Please don't hesitate. Donate now at: bit.ly/istandwithnepal ‪#‎NepalEarthquake‬

Whenever a disaster strikes, the education of children takes a blow. And the same has happened in the aftermath of ‪#‎NepalEarthquake‬. Education of thousands of children has come to a standstill. As per the reports coming in, 3353 schools in the severely-afflicted districts, 2903 schools in the most-afflicted districts and 9762 schools in the partially-afflicted districts have been severely affected.

Helping Nepalese children resume their education will be a priority in Save the Children's relief and rehabilitation response. ‪#‎NepalQuakeRelief‬
