Smiling, healthy and ready to learn! In Malawi, far too many preschool kids aren’t getting enough to eat. We’re helping to change that, thanks to our #Partner4Children supporters. These boys are just a few of the 3-5 year olds who now receive better nutrition at home and in the classroom.

We’re helping 5-year-old Mashooma* and 1-year-old Karima* do what kids do best — have fun! But life hasn’t been easy on the siblings and their family, who were forced to flee heavy fighting in #Afghanistan. Now with support from our #Partner4Children community, they’re able to gain a sense of normalcy at our Mother and Baby area in the refugee camp where their mother receives parenting support and the girls get a chance to play their way to a brighter future. *Child’s name changed for protection.

Dozens of refugees are at risk of freezing to death due to heavy snows and bitterly cold temperatures. Children like 2-year-old Rana* are without proper access to heat and shelter and are particularly vulnerable to hypothermia. Many are living in poorly equipped camps, in abandoned buildings, or on snow-filled streets. Learn about our response and how you can help, link in the bio.

The world cannot turn its back while children continue to live through violence. Children in #Syria have known only war and suffering for the past 7 years. They need our help more than ever. Click the link in our bio to donate.


The world has made incredible progress for children. Since 1990, we’ve reduced the number of deaths for children under 5 by more than half. But there are still so many children to reach who’ve been forgotten because they live on the streets, in camps or remote villages; discriminated against because of their gender, ethnicity or a disability. Help us reach the most vulnerable children with what they need most – life-saving healthcare and education. Link in the bio.


You can help children realize their dreams by providing books, learning materials & access to an education. Give the gift of life-changing education and show them anything is possible, link in the bio.
