Why we're supporting Save the Children's Child Refugee Crisis Appeal:
Europe is facing its worst refugee crisis in decades.
More than 1.1 million people have now made the perilous trip across the Mediterranean to Europe in search of safety. For those who survive the journey, their terrifying ordeal is not over. Bundled into trucks or walking many miles, children are afraid and exhausted, and the physical impact of travelling is clear. Waits for registration can take days. Toilets are scarce, and food and water are often in shortly supply. Many children are sleeping in damp tents or out in the open.
Save the Children work along the whole route that refugees take into Europe, as well as in the countries they are fleeing.
In Turkey, Greece, Italy, Croatia, Serbia and along the route refugees take, they’re making sure children and their families have food, water and shelter, warm, waterproof clothing and hot drinks to protect them from the cold.
Their centres offer children medical help and washing facilities, and contact friends and family. They offer legal advice and guidance on seeking asylum, and we look out for vulnerable children.
Save the Children’s teams work in Syria and other countries, where war has forced millions to flee their homes. They’re also working with refugee communities in Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq.
They provide children and families with food and clean water, as well as medicine, shelter and winter clothes. They support healthcare facilities and schools, and give children safe spaces to play and learn.
