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.

#Syrian refugees continue to escape the violence in their country. They now live in tents where conditions are harsh and camp authorities struggle to meet the basic needs of the overwhelming numbers of refugees arriving each day.

We all succeed when girls are given the opportunity to succeed, and education is key in keeping them on the path to a brighter future. This #InternationalWomensDay, give a gift that will keep on giving for years to come. Your support can help provide the books, learning materials and schooling a girl needs to grow and flourish. Educate a girl today and she can succeed as a woman tomorrow. Link in the bio. #IWD2018
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 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.
